This presentation considers 33 scenarios involving employee leaves of absence, drawn from real life experiences by our clients. We will cover multiple issues raised by each of these scenarios, including:
The employee who repeatedly provides a doctor's note just before being scheduled to return to work;
How to find a replacement without getting sued;
How long an employer must hold a position;
The interaction of multiple leave laws during pregnancy and related baby bonding;
Strategies for warning or disciplining employees who have gone on or are about to return from leave;
Strategies for encouraging poorly performing employees not to return;
Handling return to work issues when employees continue to be disabled; and
The documentation necessary to support the actions taken by the employer.
The presentation will also address the application of the ADA and related state law as they interact with other state and federal leave laws.
