Understanding Disability in the Workplace: LTD, STD, Workers' Compensation and Return-to-Work
|Date / Time:
Most employers struggle with the problem of absenteeism as business objectives simply can't be met if employees aren't at work.
Managing absences related to an employee's illness or injury can be administratively burdensome and legally difficult, further complicated by the proliferation of federal, state, and local laws defining both paid and unpaid leave and disability entitlements.
In this webinar we will discuss the components of illness and injury benefits, including sick time, short- and long-term disability and workers' compensation.
You will learn how to take your program from theory to reality, focusing on identifying the right tactic, and effectively deploying resources to get the best shared outcome for the employee and the employer.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
