Managing Employee Leave, 1 CLE hour

First Run Broadcast: October 5, 2016
1:00 p.m. E.T. (60 minutes)


Employers are required under several branches of law to provide leave to employees and often reinstate them to the same job category when they return.  The FMLA, ADA and Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) set a variety of eligibility standards and circumstances in which employers must offer leave, or become liable for failing to do so.  The complexity of these overlapping laws exposes clients to substantial risk and liability if these laws’ requirements are not properly integrated into workplace leave policy and administration. This program will provide you with a practical guide to the sources of federal employee leave law, covered employees and qualifying circumstances, how leave can and should be incorporated into employer policies and handbooks to avoid liability.

• Recent developments impacting employee leave – FMLA, ADA, and military leave 
• What employees are covered by leave law and what circumstances are entitled to leave? 
• What length of leave and what compensation/benefits must employers offer employees? 
• What rights to job category reinstatement do employees have after returning from leave? 
• Practical guidance on incorporating leave into employer policies and employee handbooks
• Medical certificate, proof of eligibility, and practical traps for employers in administering leave policy
