A+HR: Addressing Absences, Aging Workforces, Accommodations, & More

Register online.

When it comes to addressing workplace legal issues, employers can't afford to be underachievers. Whether you are a human resources professional, supervisor, manager, administrator, business owner, or board member, in either the private or public sector, it's important to make the grade when employment matters arise to test your organization. In A+ HR, we will address five developing areas of employment law including managing an aging workforce, effectively dealing with absenteeism, reasonable accommodation under the ADA, and more.

So please join us the morning of September 15 for bagels, coffee, and an invaluable opportunity to prepare for acing your next HR challenge.

The Aging Workforce
Bob Gregg

People are working longer than ever before, which can create quandaries for employers. This presentation will cover the major liability area (it is not the ADEA), determining employee fitness for duty, and how to make valid nondiscriminatory decisions and terminations.

Practical Lessons: The Duty to Accommodate Disabilities
Steve Zach & Ashley Rouse

This session will review the duty to accommodate individuals with disabilities and focus on three common situations that pose problems for employers.

Unemployment Compensation: Recent Developments and Key Considerations
Brian Goodman

Unemployment compensation continues to evolve. This session will cover recent Wisconsin cases discussing unemployment compensation and also cover important unemployment compensation considerations that arise in separation agreements, breaks in employment, and other situations.

First Line Supervisors: Your Foundation for a Strong Workforce
JoAnn Hart

The infrastructure for managing an organization's major resource, the human resource, stands on the foundation of first line supervisors. This presentation will explore a checklist for training first line supervisors on compliant handling of HR issues and reporting such issues to HR.

Leaves of Absence and Chronic Intermittent Absence: Challenging Issues under Complex Laws
Jennifer Mirus

Leaves of absence and intermittent absences for health-related or other reasons consistently confront employers. This presentation will walk through FMLA, ADA, workers compensation, and other policies that impact an employee's right to be away from work.
