    Description of Program:

    Has your organization implemented policies and administrative procedures to comply with the Family & Medical Leave Act?  Are managers and supervisors in your organization properly responding to requests for leaves under the Act?  Understanding the interaction with Workers’ Compensation and Americans with Disabilities Act presents additional challenges - where does one begin and the other leave off?

    This program will explore:

    Leave requirements for employees who qualify for family and/or medical leaves.

    The reinstatement rights of employees following leaves under FMLA/ADA.

    How to analyze a FMLA/ADA request for time off.
