March 25 | 4:00 pm5:00 pm
Speaker: Philip J. Siegel | Member Shareholder, Hendrick Phillips Salzman & Siegel, PC
Most employers understand that when an employee suffers an injury at work, workers’ compensation insurance will provide coverage for the claim. But when an employee suffers an injury at work and is unable to come back to work, other laws are implicated.
This session will provide an overview of the interplay between the Family Medical Leave Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and workers’ compensation laws, all of which may come into play when an injured employee will need to miss work.
In this session you will:
- Discuss the employer’s compliance obligations under what is often referred to as the Devil’s Triangle and be in a better position to avoid a misstep when dealing with an injured employee
- Discuss the legal road map for effectuating a termination of an injured employee who is unable to timely return to work
- Ethical Practice
- HR Expertise
