Description
Leaves of absence issues arising in connection with serious health conditions and disabilities, whether work-related or not, have long created headaches for employers. These headaches have increased in light of developing new law under the federal Americans with Disabilities Act and California regulations. This session will focus on some of the most challenging issues that employers commonly face in applying both state and federal law to leaves of absence involving extended medical leave, pregnancy disability leave, workers’ compensation leave and leaves of absence related to disability accommodation, as well as the interaction of such leaves and how each affect employees’ requests.

It will address how to handle requests for leaves of absence at all stages in the process. Eligibility for various leaves and any requisite documentation will be outlined, as well as requests for intermittent and reduced schedule leaves and circumstances under which transfers may be requested or permissible. Certification issues will be examined, such as when second opinions may be requested. Also, reinstatement obligations and fitness for duty requirements will be discussed.

In addition, the session will explain how to address disability accommodation issues in the workplace by outlining in detail how to appropriately engage in the interactive process, from recommendations on what documentation to request from the employee to how to best document communications with the employee, and how to determine what, if any, reasonable accommodation is needed. Best practices for evaluating such requests will also be addressed.

Lastly, the session will address the propriety of medical inquiries and exams and explain best practices for employers utilizing such processes.

Excellent Presentation
Helene spoke way too fast. It was hard to follow the speaker and the slides. When the answers were shown to the questions it would have been useful to see the question as well as the answer again. Lots of good information. I'll do further google research on some of the cases presented. 3 / 5
