Untangling FMLA, ADA and Workers’ Compensation webinar
An outline for untangling the myriad of obligations employers face
By Tim O’Toole
The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) will present Untangling FMLA, ADA and Workers’ Compensation on Wednesday, September 4, 2013, at 10:00 AM CDT.
Employers are confronted with multiple obligations under federal and state law when an employee takes time off for a work-related injury. State workers’ compensation laws determine the payment to be made to the injured employee. They also prohibit retaliation against employees who file workers’ compensation claims.
On the federal side, the Family and Medical Leave Act requires covered employers to grant eligible employees up to 12 weeks of leave for a “serious health condition.” Many work-related injuries are also an FMLA serious health condition. Also, the Americans with Disabilities Act protects disabled employees from discrimination. The same workplace injury that is also a serious health condition may also constitute a “disability” and bring with it a third set of obligations under the ADA.
This webinar discusses the major provisions of each statute and provides an outline for untangling the myriad of obligations employers face under the three laws.
