6-Hour Virtual Seminar on The Interplay of the Americans With Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and Workers’ Compensation - ResearchAndMarkets.com

May 17, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 17, 2019--

The “6-Hour Virtual Seminar on The Interplay of the Americans With Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and Workers’ Compensation” webinar has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Legal compliance can get confusing when some legal regulations seemingly overlap or even seem almost contradictory to implement. This is the case when the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and Workers’ Compensation intersect.

The intersecting of these three laws is complicated and open to problems if not handled correctly. ADA, FMLA and Workers Compensation have different goals and protections for employees, yet all three have provisions that may require an employer to give job-protected time off when the right circumstances are met.

It’s essential for employers to understand Federal and State laws with respect to these three laws in order to be compliant.

The majority of unscheduled and scheduled absences are related to the illness of employees or their family members. Under those circumstances, one, both, or all three of these laws may be involved. Violations of these laws may result in lost wages, back pay, reinstatement, retroactive benefits, compensatory damages, and punitive damages

In addition to employers legal responsibilities, employers also have moral and ethical responsibilities to ensure employees receive the benefits and protections these laws provide.

Why You Should Attend

The interplay of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and Workers Compensation laws has been referred to as the “Bermuda Triangle of employment law.” It’s imperative for employers to recognize and understand the interplay of the ADA, FMLA and Workers Compensation laws.

Employers have legal responsibilities to comply with these laws or face significant violations for noncompliance. Employers have ethical and moral responsibilities to ensure employees receive the benefits and protections these laws provide.

Each of these three laws have different purposes. The ADA prohibits discrimination. The FMLA sets minimum leave standards. Workers compensation laws provide for payment of compensation and rehabilitation for workplace injuries and minimize employer liability.

Participating in this webinar will provide participants with a clear understanding of each of these laws and how they interact with each other, incorporating that information into company policies, and the ability to communicate those policies to employees.
