Presented by Brian K. Weeks
Understanding and navigating through the so-called “Bermuda Triangle” of leave laws can be especially challenging when you are trying to ensure consistent performance and accountability within your work group. Supervisors, who are often the first point of contact for absences, need to be able to recognize when one or more statutory leaves applies to their employee’s situation. This can include appropriately communicating and designating leave for eligible employees, and also fulfill any obligations under ADA requests for accommodation.
This session provides you with an understanding of the current requirements, as well as tips for policy implementation, proactive management of employee attendance and leaves; and, knowledge of when and how to seek technical assistance with complex issues.
- Consistently enforce attendance policies in a way that compliments federal and state laws
- Gain a broad understanding of employer requirements and increased confidence when dealing with attendance and performance issues
- Ensure you are complying with your employer responsibilities relating to FMLA, OFLA, ADA, and Sick Leave.
Who will benefit
- New and emerging leaders with little or no prior training or experience in managing others
- Experienced managers interested in staying abreast of employer compliance and best practices
- HR professionals and organizational leaders looking to ensure effective risk management and compliance with current employment laws
