KPA Hosting Webinar on Workers Comp April 19

Thu Apr 13, 2017

KPA will be putting on a webinar about workers' compensation, ADA and FMLA at 10 a.m. MDT on April 19.

The Federal Family Medical Leave Act providesl eave for qualifying individuals for their own serious health condition or to care for a close relative. Employees injured on the job may qualify under the Workers’ Compensation program. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides leaves as a reasonable accommodation of a qualifying disability. Sometimes these leaves run concurrently, sometimes they don’t and sometimes one leave type will then require a second type be offered. Don’t forget COBRA, which governs when an employee is entitled to continuation of health care benefits at their cost.

If that sounds confusing - and it is - KPA Vice President of Human Management Products Kathryn Carlson will provide an overview of the regulations and provide expert advice on effectively managing various employee types of employee leaves, even when they collide.

She also will share the answers to the top 10 questions on leave management, taken from the thousands of questions KPA HR consultants answer for clients each year.
