9:00 – 9:15 a.m.
A Quick Refresher on ADA and FMLA Leave
To get things started, a practical overview of ADA and FMLA coverage, eligibility, and qualifying reasons for leaves.
– Grant T. Collins


9:15 – 10:00 a.m.
Leave as a Reasonable Accommodation – Obligations and Options 
Once an employee has used all available FMLA leave or is not eligible for FMLA, the 2016 EEOC Guidance makes clear that an employer is still obligated to provide time off to an employee as an ADA accommodation. How much time does an employee get? Is an employer obligated to hold the employee’s position open? If so, for how long? If an employee cannot return to her original position, must an employer give the employee first priority on another job opening? How long does the right to reinstatement last? Learn how to deal with company needs while still providing the employee’s legal rights under federal and state law.
– Grant T. Collins


10:00 – 11:00 a.m.
Intermittent FMLA – A Continuing Complex Challenge
Using real-life scenarios, learn strategies to help curb disruption to the workplace when employees are on intermittent FMLA, including issues involving medical certification and re-certification, the company’s “call-in” requirements, Monday/Friday absence patterns, and other issues that make intermittent leave so difficult to manage.
– Nancy S. Anton


11:00 – 11:15 a.m.
BREAK


11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
Return to Work Crossroads – Navigating the Intersection of Worker’s Compensation, the ADA, and FMLA
How to get an employee back to work from leave due to a workers’ compensation injury, with a focus on light duty options, fitness for duty evaluations and disability accommodation.
– Kathleen S. Bray
