(INDIANAPOLIS) — The June Indiana Chamber conference schedule features several daylong events to help make sure Hoosier companies have the latest legal information on a variety of workplace matters.

The FMLA Seminar on June 12 will cover the ins and outs of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Topics include the impact of FMLA and ADA on absenteeism, FMLA abuse, returning from leave, birth and adoption, plus qualifications for leave. The seminar, which is presented by Ogletree Deakins attorneys, will conclude with an interactive session on FMLA issues and a question-and-answer session.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Recordkeeping and Reporting Conference on June 19 will highlight the importance of keeping records and filing reports, the OSHA method for injury and illness recordkeeping, and the difference between OSHA recordkeeping and worker’s compensation. Discussion of the new OSHA requirements is also on the agenda. Bobbi Samples of The Safety Firm is the presenter.

Both of these events take place at the Indiana Chamber Conference Center.

The Indiana Chamber’s Annual Worker’s Compensation Conference on June 24 tackles issues such as the evolution of worker’s compensation, rethinking return-to-work programs, recent judicial decisions and how to present a winning case to the Worker’s Comp Board. The Hyatt Regency Indianapolis is the location.

Kerri Begley, vice president of conferences and special events, says these are three of the most popular recurring programs the Indiana Chamber offers.

“They can be such a great benefit because they are updated with current policies and laws, and they are a great way to get individual questions answered for your business.”

Cost for each event is $299 per person for Indiana Chamber members or $329 for non-members. Group discounts and continuing education credits are available.

The Indiana Chamber partners with 25,000 members and investors – representing over four million Hoosiers – to achieve the mission of “cultivating a world-class environment which provides economic opportunity and prosperity.”
