There is an alarming increase in employment litigation filed against employers by employees injured on the job.

More and more employees are making claims for not only workers' compensation benefits, but for violations of the FMLA and ADA during the worker compensation claim. Employers are finding themselves in Court because of missteps made during the workers' compensation claims process. This topic will arm you with practical tips and information necessary to protect you from additional liability by avoiding the landmines of the FMLA, ADA and associated statutes.

This topic is designed to give practical tips to employers and anyone consulting with or advising employers, in navigating the employment statutes, and to present employment best practices when an employee claims or is receiving workers' compensation benefits. We will provide guidance in handling the workers' compensation claims in the context of the ADA and FMLA, from the initial work injury through the return to work and all aspects of the claims, such as medical examinations, the job offer, the interactive process, requests for modified duties, request for modified work schedules, and intermittent leave. This is a can't miss topic.
