Clark Hill Philadelphia Attorneys Moderate Webinar, “Performance and Termination Decisions Under the FMLA and ADA.”
On Wednesday, March 18, 2020, Clark Hill Philadelphia attorneys Stephanie Rawitt and Kevin Levine moderated a webinar entitled, “Performance and Termination Decisions Under the FMLA and ADA: Avoiding Retaliation Claims and Litigation When Disciplining or Discharging Employees on Protected Leave.” The FMLA, ADA, and state workers' compensation statutes all protect employees who need to take time off from work because of medical, disability, or family issues. These laws intersect and overlap, and in some cases, all three may protect an employee. Employers know that terminating or disciplining an employee is difficult under the best of circumstances. Terminating or disciplining an employee who is on job-protected leave adds layers of complexity and can expose an employer to costly claims and lawsuits for retaliation and interference.
In this 90-minute CLE webinar, Rawitt and Levine discuss strategies for navigating difficult performance and termination decisions when they arise while an employee is on job-protected leave.
