Dealing with Employee Absenteeism (ADA, FMLA and Workers’ Compensation)

This workshop addresses the potential conflicts caused by overlapping federal and state laws concerning employee leaves of absence, i.e. the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act and the New York State Workers’ Compensation Law. It presents managers with both a practical guide to complying with these statutes, and helps identify issues related to disability absences, and the avoidance of the legal pitfalls associated with this important aspect of human resource management. An overview of applicable employment laws would facilitate communication and understanding between line supervisors, human resources and upper management.
