Make sense of the gray areas when it comes to preexisting injuries. Get proactive approaches to avoid workers’ compensation claims before they happen.

There is no amount of prior planning or safety protocols that can completely eliminate injuries and disabilities from the workforce, and employers who are faced with these issues need to have the tools to make informed decisions and limit company liability. This topic will explore the most common issues that employers of all sizes face in dealing with employees (and prospective employees) who have preexisting injuries, are injured on the job, or who require an accommodation for an injury or disability that is not job-related. This topic will also explore how company liability can be limited through prior planning and proactive policy implementation.

  • You will be able to describe the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
  • You will be able to discuss details of the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
  • You will be able to define legal obligations in regard to employees injured on the job.
