Course Description:
A common frustration for employers when administering leaves of absence policies is determining how to respond to leave requests extending beyond the FMLA. For quite some time, the EEOC, as well as numerous court decisions, have confirmed an employer’s obligation to provide additional leave beyond the FMLA as a reasonable accommodation. From an enforcement standpoint, the EEOC takes a hard-line approach and rejects employer attempts to establish maximum leave policies. Simply put, from the EEOC’s perspective, there is no specific formula – each employee’s request for leave must be considered on an individualized basis.
This 90 minute webinar focuses on steps employers should take in evaluating employee leave requests beyond the FMLA, including:
  • Documentation of the interactive process to determine whether additional leave is a reasonable accommodation;
  • Approaches to communicating an employer’s inability to continue to hold open an employee’s position;
  • Transfer obligations when a leave of absence is no longer reasonable;
  • Benefits issues during extended leaves of absence;
  • How to reconcile recent pro-employer decisions by the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, Severson v. Heartland Woodcraft, Inc. and Marytza Golden v. Indianapolis Housing Agency, in light of the EEOC’s enforcement position and court decisions in other jurisdictions
