How to Handle Employees with Medical Issues to Protect Your Company! 

Presented by experienced employment lawyers Nancy Joerg and Tony Caruso

Clients worry how to respond when employees have medical issues which interfere with their job performance. What are the best practices employers should use? How can the Company protect itself?

The following topics will be explained in easy to understand language:

  • How to NOT get lost in the Bermuda Triangle: work injuries, Family and Medical Leave Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • How to comply with the Family and Medical Leave Act. What’s a serious health condition? Consecutive and intermittent leaves?
  • How to work with provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act: restricted work, reasonable accommodations, covered disabilities, alcoholism, anxiety and depression.
  • The pregnant employee and how to comply with pregnancy laws.

You and your staff will learn all of this with no lost travel time or expense. No special equipment is required to participate in this live, interactive program – all you need is a telephone.
