Now more than ever it is important to understand state and federal leave laws. If an employee contracts COVID at work, is this covered by Workers’ Comp? Are they entitled to FMLA leave?
This session will include a high-level recap on the ADA, FMLA, and Texas’s Workers’ Comp statute, but will focus on how these laws interact and sometimes overlap. It will also include discussion related to COVID-related leave and how short- and long-term disability are included in the mix.
Participants Learning Objectives:
- Identify the key provisions of the ADA, FMLA, and Workers’ Compensation statute
- Distinguish situations in which each of the leave laws apply and when they overlap
- Illustrate COVID-specific examples of how each of the laws might operate and interact
- Describe the purpose of short- and long-term disability during employee leave
