This 2-part session is offered as a single session purchase or Session 4 in the Manager and HR Training Series.
Part 1: Leave Of Absence: What Managers Need to Know
Why do I, as a manager, need to know about leaves of absence? Isn't this an HR-only training? Do any of these statements sound familiar: "My spouse is pregnant!" "I'm having back surgery." "My father passed away, and I need time off." "I'm missing work due to anxiety." "I'm managing time for substance counseling." "My child has chronic ear infections." "I'm taking a new medication, and it makes me sleepy." Congratulations, you have leave experience! This session will ensure managers know their next steps and resources to manage legally protected leaves compliantly.
Part 2: ABCs Of ADA: Workplace Accommodations - What Managers Need to Know
Providing reasonable accommodations is not just best practice; it's the law. Beyond the legal requirement to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities, our workplaces benefit by creating a more knowledgeable and inclusive workforce. Managers are key employees in the ADA process, and providing training and tools for confidence in the process is essential to risk mitigation for organizations.
