About

The first half of this seminar will provide examples and information to navigate the disability process from the employer’s perspective. Attendees will learn how to apply practical procedures to the most common real-world situations that often occur in the workplace.
Are there are circumstances when migraine headaches, mental health conditions and non-visible ailments may be considered a disability under the law?

Learn how to recognize when an employee may have a disability, when employers are required to provide accommodations for disabilities, and whether or not a leave of absence is mandated.

Are you a covered employer? If so, what is your responsibility? What is the employee’s responsibility and leave entitlement? What should you do and when?

The second half of this seminar will be on the Employment Development Department’s disability process:

  • Employee online process.
  • How employers can best represent the process.
  • Best practices, do’s and don’ts.
