Even the simplest leave requests can be complex and nuanced, posing challenges to even the most seasoned Leave Administrators.
The possibility of costly, drawn-out litigation only adds to the stress and pressure. Add to that: most employees making leave requests will be eligible for protection under the FMLA, ADA and, as well as State medical leave and other COVID-19 emergency laws.
In this webinar we will discuss key, hot-button compliance issues and share some Best Practices for managing a workforce while staying in compliance during a pandemic.
Why you should Attend
