The Most Common (and Puzzling) Disability and Leave Management Hurdles
As the ADA celebrates its 25th anniversary, disability and leave management issues continue to plague employers. Employees are well-adept at finding new and creative ways to get out of work. We will review the latest and most interesting scenarios and trends to identify the practical guidance that you can use to remain in compliance.

EEOC + Supreme Court = PDA Jumble  
The highest authorities have spoken, but are you still puzzled by your obligations to pregnant employees? Last year, the EEOC issued new Guidance providing its interpretation of pregnancy discrimination under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA), the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA), and various other laws. This year, the Supreme Court weighed in on the necessity of accommodating pregnant employees, but left open a number of questions. We will analyze the impact of these and other developments on employers and share with you pragmatic advice for compliance.

Silo No More! Getting All Of Your Benefit and Leave Pieces Together
One of the more challenging aspects of leave management is coordinating the various benefits available (Workers’ Compensation, Long-Term Disability, Short-Term Disability, Paid Sick Leave, FMLA, vacation, etc.). Does it feel like employees take advantage of the multitude of benefits available and then use your generosity against you? With the multitude of benefits, laws, third-party administrators and even company departments and personnel involved, it is easy for an employee to take advantage. Does your left hand know what your right is doing? Learn to recognize and eliminate the silos that make effective leave management problematic.
