•Fake doctor’s notes?•Migraines that only occur on Mondays?•Caregiving that is only needed on Fridays?•Employees who continue to ask for extensions for their leave of absence?

It is incredibly frustrating and difficult dealing with nebulous employee Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) issues. This half-day Workshop will help you navigate the complex landscape of leave laws and provide comprehensive training on the Do’s and Don’ts under the FMLA and ADA. Through both hypothetical and real-life examples, attendees will gain a better understanding of the administration and compliance with leave laws in order to avoid costly claims and litigation by employees.
