Webinar Details

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 SHOULD YOU ATTEND?

Paid-leave regulations are getting complicated. As support grows for (and some business groups push against) a national law mandating paid family leave and paid sick days, some states, cities and individual organizations are out in front—adopting measures of their own. This proliferation and mishmash of regulations can make staying in compliance challenging.

  • COVID and ADA considerations
  • Post-FFCRA obligations and considerations
  • Screening for COVID
  • Vaccines and more

  • CEO’s
  • Business Owners

SPEAKER PROFILE

instructor

Janette Levey Frisch, has over 20 years of legal experience, more than 10 of which she has spent in Employment Law. It was during her tenure as sole in-house counsel for a mid-size staffing company headquartered in Central New Jersey, with operations all over the continental US, that she truly developed her passion for Employment Law. Janette operates under this core belief: It is possible, and it is in an employer’s best interest, to proactively solve workforce challenges before they become problems, before they result in lawsuits or steep fines caused by government audits. Janette works with employers on most employment law issues, acting as the Employer’s Legal Wellness Professional — to ensure that employers are in the best position possible to avoid litigation, audits, employee relations problems, and the attendant, often exorbitant costs. Janette authors the firm’s weekly blog, where you can read each week, in plain English (not legalese) about issues impacting employers today. Janette has written articles on many different employment law issues for many publications, including EEO Insight, Staffing Industry Review, @Law, and Chief Legal Officer. Janette has spoken and trained on topics, such as Criminal Background Checks in the Hiring Process, Joint Employment, Severance Arrangements, Pre-Employment Screening among many, many others. Janette serve on the Workplace Violence Prevention Institute, a multi-disciplinary task force, dedicated to providing, holistic, proactive and cutting-edge solutions and resources for employers committed to ensuring a safe workplace.
