The Bermuda Triangle of Leave -
Continuing the Navigation of 
Family Medical Leave Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, and Worker’s Compensation

With the ever-changing scenarios that the employee population faces, Human Resources is a critical component and facilitator in ensuring that leaves are handled with delicate care.  Whether an employee needs leave because of a serious health condition or leave to take care of others, leave issues regularly come up in the workplace setting.  Navigating the current leave laws can be very difficult.  Employees depend on working with a practitioner who understands the leave laws and can guide them through the process.  Join us for this highly informative program, as we take you through common leave scenarios that arise in the workplace and the importance of following consistent practices, including policies, procedures and an established Return to Work program.
