Employer's Toolkit Webinar: The Bermuda Triangle of Compliance
It's known as the Bermuda Triangle of employment law: An injured or sick employee may be protected by the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and a state’s workers’ compensations laws at the same time. Fail to understand how these laws work together and you could lose significant money in missed work days, temporary help and overtime — and face the possibility of costly litigation.
Employers must be aware of this possibility and their various legal obligations under each law. In this Employer’s Toolkit webinar, Mike Mattingly and Corey Asay will help you to fully understand:
- Which employers and employees are covered under each law
- The rights employers have to request employee medical information
- Issues related to leaves of absence
- Best practices for avoiding litigation, including claims of retaliation
Mike is an enthusiastic and entertaining presenter on employment law. His military background enables him to provide a unique perspective on employment issues, specifically the nuances of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) and the challenges it presents to employers. He understands challenges of military men and women reentering the workforce from both viewpoints — and he has the leadership and management capabilities necessary to practically work through disputes.
Corey works with local businesses as well as large national companies dealing with non-competition agreements, the misappropriation of trade secrets, and the False Claims Act. He takes a practical and calculated approach to working with employers, whether investigating claims, interviewing witnesses, or drafting responses to charges. He thoroughly examines all angles of a matter before advising the client on the appropriate strategy, whether it’s negotiating a settlement, participating in mediation, or pursuing litigation.
