The COVID-19 pandemic has changed so much of the world as we knew it. With such an infectious disease, the employee has either been sick or caring for family members who are – or have had to deal with school and child care closings, or so many other issues arising out of COVID. Employees have needed to take time off to deal with these many challenges. In turn, employers have the challenge of running their business and managing employee leave during such turbulent times. How does an employer untangle that web? This webinar will explore that and other questions many employers have been asking.

Session Highlights:

  • FMLA, ADA, FFCRA and Workers’ Comp Basics; 

  • Where FMLA, ADA, FFCRA, and Workers’ Comp overlap, and where/how they differ; 

  • Calculation of pay during paid time off under the FFCRA 

  • How to request and document leave under the FFCRA; 

  • Understanding some of the key provisions in the DOL’s 5 rounds of guidance in the wake of the FFCRA; 

  • What it means to be “unable” to work or telework; 

  • Whether or not intermittent leave under the FFCRA’s Emergency Paid Sick Leave and Emergency FMLA provisions is allowed; and 

  • Whether or not health coverage continues during leave

Why You Should Attend:

Even the more simple leave requests can be complex and nuanced, posing challenges to even the most seasoned Leave Administrators. The possibility of costly, drawn-out litigation, only adds to the stress and pressure. Add to that: most employees making leave requests will be eligible for protection under the FMLA, ADA, and, now, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) among other laws. In this webinar, we will discuss key, hot-button compliance issues and share some Best Practices for managing a workforce while staying in compliance.

  • HR Directors

  • All HR Practitioners,

  • CEO’s

  • Business Owners

  • Senior Managers

  • Leave Administrators

  • Benefits Administrators

  • CFO’s

  • Controllers,
