FMLA Extension: When 12 Weeks Is Not Enough

Workshop Description/Agenda

Learn to determine when an employee's medical leave should shift from FMLA to ADA and how to avoid abuse issues while remaining compliant with state and federal laws.There is a conflicting and confusing patchwork of federal, state and local laws respecting an employer's obligation to provide leaves of absences. In many instances, an employer may be obliged to provide more than the12 weeks of unpaid leave contemplated by the federal Family and Medical Leave Act. Many questions arise including about how much leave must be given, whether it is paid or unpaid and what rights (if any) do employers have to deny or restrict leave. This topic will explore these issues and others.
