Attendees will learn what’s new in the 2021 edition of FMLA Jeopardy.  

The current state of U.S. employment laws has created a challenge for HR professionals as they consider how to navigate the FMLA in conjunction with the ADA and a plethora of related laws. Given this reality, and considering the influence you have in your organization, are you fully prepared for what tomorrow may bring? Or are you ignoring the critical decisions and guidance that exist to support your efforts to pragmatically assist your workforce? Are you aware of the most recent issues that exist and how they may impact your employees? In truth, your employees depend on you to avoid jeopardy in your organization. This engaging and highly interactive session will provide you with the information you need to address concerns you may not even have considered. Together, we will explore the latest issues, potential solutions and troublesome pitfalls as pointed out by courts from around the country. 

Learning Objectives: 

  • Learn about the latest court decisions that impact the FMLA and the ADA, among other laws. 
  • Discover how the respective decisions may alter the manner in which HR assesses situations. 
  • Learn about the interplay between leave, disability, and wage and hour concerns.
