Webinar: Coronavirus (COVID-19) - FMLA and ADA Compliance When Dealing With Employee Mental Health
Mental illness is one of the leading causes of disability in the United States. With approximately 1 in 5 U.S. adults experiencing mental illness each year, there is a strong chance employers will encounter situations involving employees with mental health issues. And that's especially true amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Addressing mental health in the workplace presents unique challenges, as employees are less likely to report mental illness than physical illness. And, this webinar will better prepare your organization for these challenges.
Fisher Phillips employment attorneys Joshua Nadreau and Jen Barrett DiMarzo discuss how to identify, address and accommodate mental health issues under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and tie these issues in with current events.
Nadreau and Barrett DiMarzo provides step-by-step guidance on employer responsibility under the ADA and the FMLA, including several tips and tricks for maintaining a balanced and productive work environment, and potential traps for the unwary.
This 60-minute webinar features:
- Eligibility for FMLA and/or ADA protections;
- Employer responsibility for addressing mental health conditions;
- Challenges in addressing mental health conditions; and
- Best practices to avoid liability and create a positive working environment.
