About the Webinar
As businesses emerge from the pandemic and workers return to the office, employers may face new and sometimes unexpected challenges with employees’ requests for medical leave or accommodations. Must employers accommodate requests to continue remote work? How about time off or accommodations related to taking care of a child due to COVID-19 related circumstances?
Join us as we discuss employer obligations in the arena of medical leave and accommodations including best practices on managing the interactive process and specific accommodations examples.
In this webinar, we’ll discuss:
- Types of COVID-19 related circumstances that may trigger protections under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and/or the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- Who is covered under FMLA
- Employer obligations under the ADA
- Potential pitfalls to avoid when an employee requests a medical accommodation
