                                                                                          PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

With increasingly aggressive enforcement of FMLA and ADA, as well as recent adopt of various other leave related laws, companies are searching for more reliable and defensible ways to manage leave and attendance obligations. In this presentation, we will review the steps an employer must consider for virtually every leave and accommodation situation. We will also cover how employers can assure employees meet their responsibilities under the law.  We will specifically review the interplay between the FMLA, the ADA, New York’s Paid Family Leave, as well as any provided paid time off benefits.
