Complimentary Webinar: "Six Ways Your Managers are Causing FMLA & ADA Lawsuits, and How to Train Them to Stop"
December 12, 2018
Over the past year alone, employers have been forced to defend FMLA and ADA lawsuits due simply to an inappropriate comment from a manager after an employee requests time off or an accommodation in the workplace. A snide comment about an employee in an email . . . discussing an employee's medical condition with others in a meeting . . . telling an employee that the Company "can't afford" for him to take time off. Despite an employer's best policies (and intentions), all it takes is a new or untrained manager to cause an FMLA or ADA-related lawsuit.
