Preparing for Employee's Return-to-Work

OnDemand Webinar (91 minutes)

Learn how implementing a successful return- to-work program can help employees returning from leave get back into the swing of things.Employees taking leave for medical reasons create a special challenge for employers, who must consider compliance with multiple employment laws, including FMLA, ADA, and workers' compensation. Laws may require employees to be reinstated after leave. It is often difficult to understand when the requirements of the law apply and how to handle the interplay of these laws and walk the tightrope of all the legal requirement. This information helps people responsible for administering leave and return-to-work programs to understand the leave and return from leave requirements and explains when and how to use fitness for duty or return-to-work evaluations, and tips and best practices for light duty work programs.
