Upcoming Sacramento Seminar: The Complex Web of Federal, State and Local Leaves of Absence Laws

Download: April Webinar.pdf

Summary of Program
Employers continue to grapple with this very difficult area of employment law. It is not enough to focus on just one law when an employee is unable to work or is absent from the workplace due to some medical condition or injury suffered by the employee or his or her family member. Instead, employers need to understand and comply with how the courts, and various federal and state regulatory agencies, are interpreting the interplay between a number of laws like the FMLA/CFRA, ADA/FEHA, PDL, USERRA, and workers’ compensation. This seminar is designed to help employers and HR professionals understand this complex interplay and to provide some practical guidance on administering leaves and absences.

Program Highlights

  • New Regulations and Agency Directives.
  • What Does Each Law Provide: A Summary of the Statutes and Regulations.

  • The Importance of Engaging in the “Interactive Process.”
