Mental Health, Substance Abuse, Chronic Health Conditions, and More
When employees request leave for mental health conditions, substance abuse issues, and chronic illnesses, it is crucial for employers to know the legal steps they must take to process the requests and make appropriate accommodations. Failure to comply with FMLA requirements and ADA protections can lead to costly penalties or employees bringing claims of discrimination, retaliation, and harassment. This program will help you deal with the more difficult leave and accommodation issues employers face. Our faculty will demonstrate how FMLA and ADA apply to challenging situations in the workplace, providing practical solutions that comply with the law and honor employee rights and protections.
