For supervisors, few things are as frustrating as employees not attending work. Delays. Work not performed. Extra costs for others to cover for the absent employee. Yet today—often in surprising ways—the law offers many protections for employees who cannot get to work because of health concerns.
In this program we teach front-line supervisors, department heads, and others in management the basics of laws that govern health issues, work duties, and attendance. Companies do not need every boss to be an expert in how the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) interacts with the Americans with Disabilities (“ADA”); however, companies do need those in managerial jobs to know enough to stop, recognize problem areas, ask questions, and make sound decisions before firing someone with poor attendance problems. As lawyers, we see health concerns and absenteeism arise more often than any other single subject in employment law. Our training teaches your managers what they need to know for the everyday, repeated issues guaranteed to arise.
