Managing Extended Medical Leaves of Absence: How the FMLA, the ADA, and the University’s Short-Term Disability Program Inform a Supervisor's Options

What should you do if an employee is hospitalized or given a diagnosis that keeps the employee out of work?  How much time off must you give them?  What kinds of accommodations might be warranted?  This session will outline University policies and applicable law governing medical and disability leave.  In addition, the presenters will identify University resources available to supervisors to manage or help them respond to their employees' extended medical leave requests.

Presented by: Deputy General Counsel Sam Sears and Senior Associate General Counsel Jeff Jensen

When: Wednesday, February 26 from 10 to 11:15 am

Where: CHHS 159  

Please RSVP with Melanie White if you plan to attend (an RSVP is helpful for planning but not required).
