General Leave Issues

Managing Employee Leaves of Absence

Because of the recent changes to regulations including the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), employers are now faced with the important – yet sometimes daunting – task of understanding and complying with these changes. Our all-new “General Leave Issues for Indiana Employers” “Managing Employee Leaves of Absence” provides an affordable way to stay on top of various leave issues – from the revised definitions of “disability” under the ADA to how worker’s compensation leave applies to these recent regulatory changes.

What is it?

This book is designed to assist Indiana employers of all sizes in dealing with numerous leave issues and provides an overview of the relevant federal and state laws that impact absence decisions. The inter-relationship between laws such as the ADA and USERRA may not be readily apparent. Theoretically, these disparate laws should be able to peacefully coexist, complementing each other rather than creating conflict. Unfortunately, more often than not, conflict is exactly what you end up with. Notwithstanding the seemingly disparate purposes of the FMLA, ADA, USERRA and worker’s compensation laws, each of these important mandates must be considered by employers whose employees request a leave of absence.
