How to Navigate Through the Laws and Understand Your Rights
Protect yourself from the confusion and legal consequences that come from “The Triangle”
Nothing is more frustrating than having to translate legal code. Laws are intended to simplify your responsibilities — NOT cause you to reach for the aspirin bottle. And you know, lawsuits are prevalent in our society. A simple misunderstanding could end up costing you or your organization millions.
While each case is unique, Untangle the Triangle: FMLA, Workers’ Comp, and ADA will teach you how to handle any situation by demonstrating how the laws intersect and which takes priority when more than one law is affected. You’ll also discover how to protect yourself from the loss of quality employees, legal entanglements, and fines. Most importantly, you’ll secure your job AND protect your company! Save yourself from another headache by attending this training.
DON’T GET STUCK in an expensive legal battle!
KNOW THE LAWS and possible loopholes that could end up costing YOU money!
Still not sure if this training is for you? ASK YOURSELF: Is litigation in my future?
- An employee has to adjust his or her schedule because of a hospitalized child. You temporarily transfer him or her to a different department that can better meet his or her requirements. Is he or she entitled to there same rate of pay and benefits?
- Your administrative assistant is hearing impaired and has requested a hearing aid so that he or she can perform his or her responsibilities. Is this a “reasonable accommodation” under ADA?
- A customer service representative has epilepsy and has exhausted all of his or her FMLA leave. What rights does he or she have under the ADA?
- A factory employee has injured his or her leg at work and is receiving workers’ comp benefits. Is he or she obligated to accept light duty under ADA?
- An employee has been on FMLA leave for his or her designated 12-week time frame. However, he or she is still receiving workers’ comp benefits. Is he or she entitled to his or her same job and salary when returning to work?
Every answer that you don’t know is a possible lawsuit. The question isn’t: Can you afford the seminar? It’s: Can you afford to MISS it? Don’t waste another minute.
