This webinar is a follow up to our webinar, “Understanding FMLA, ADA and Workers’ Comp Overlap” and “Dealing with Employee Leave Abuse. How do you figure out which laws apply, properly administer leave, and minimize leave abuse? Perhaps most importantly, how does an employer craft effective policies and procedures that staff can easily follow so your company stays ahead of the curve? Every employer, manager, executive, be they in life sciences, banking,pharmaceutical, medical device, manufacturing or any other industry is susceptible to leave interference claims by employees, state and federal agencies and also to employee leave abuse.
Employers regularly face challenges as to how to ensure high morale and productivity from their workers, which can be compromised by employee leave abuse. Solid, proactive employment practices can enable you to stay ahead of the curve and either side-step the challenge or meet it head-on. Employers looking to get a handle on ensuring proper use of employee leave – before the employee goes out on leave will want to make sure they attend this webinar. Mark the date and time on your calendar.

She has written articles on many different employment law issues for many publications, including EEO Insight, Staffing Industry Review, @Law, and Chief Legal Officer. She has also spoken and trained on topics, such as Criminal Background Checks in the hiring process, Joint Employment, Severance Arrangements, Pre-Employment Screening among many and much more.
