The Confusing World of Disability Management

Create a better, more comprehensive strategy for hiring and successfully managing individuals who can satisfy your legitimate work related expectations.

Demographics of today indicate that many employees are older, increasingly out of shape and potentially disabled, and/or are juggling more family and/or personal responsibilities than ever. This program is designed to help you navigate an increasingly complex array of federal, state and local laws protecting your employees which may complicate your efforts to operate efficiently. You will learn that the Family and Medical Leave Act and the Americans With Disabilities Act are mere starting points. Add to this state workers' compensation, state and local sick leave laws, pregnancy leave and medical privacy protections, and one can easily understand why so many employers feel overwhelmed and unsure when managing injured and ill workers.
