2019 DMEC FMLA/ADA Employer Compliance Conference
May 6-9, Hilton Portland Downtown.
A MUST-ATTEND EVENT FOR COMPLIANCE PROFESSIONALS
Implementing and managing Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities (ADA) programs can be frustratingly complex. Adding ever-changing state and local leave laws to the mix creates a level of difficulty that is challenging to even the most seasoned professional. And compliance, as we see from court cases each year, has far-ranging consequences for your organization, whether it is large or small.
The 2019 DMEC Compliance Conference is the place to find answers and solutions that help you minimize risk in your organization and ensure you’re on the path towards ongoing compliance. You’ll gain perspectives from DOL and EEOC regulators, gather expert feedback from top employment lawyers in the industry, and discover how your fellow employers are dealing with FMLA/ADA complexity head-on in their programs.

Effectively Handling an Increasingly Clever ‘Bad’ Employee While Staying Compliant
In this session, we’ll take a look at anecdotal, yet relevant, case examples of issues facing the workforce today, with a focus on managing employees who use the FMLA, the ADA, and workers’ compensation (WC) to pre-empt a good faith termination or disciplinary action. We will examine the use of WC by employees to create employer liability, protect against termination, and establish facts for an otherwise speculative disability claim. We will examine complicated issues that arise when there is legitimate cross-over between WC/FMLA/ADA and RTW issues and accommodations. Lastly, we will explore creative ways of leveraging litigation in WC cases to help secure outcomes in civil employment suits.
