Legal seminar for business owners will focus on worker’s comp and family leave

How should employers handle salary issues for employees who have medical conditions, since as many as three different employment laws may be involved?

Human resource personnel and other managers can learn the best approach to these kinds of problems at the next Legal Awareness in the Workplace (LAW) seminar sponsored by Georgia Southern University’s Continuing Education Center.

‘Coordinating the Triad of FMLA, ADA, and Worker’s Compensation” will be held on Thursday, March 8, at the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah.

Running from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., the seminar will address the issues of paid leave, accommodation of injuries through light duty assignments, tardiness and absenteeism policies, and more.

Future LAW seminars in Savannah will include ‘Immigration Compliance Issues for Businesses” on April 19, ‘Recent Developments in the Fair Labor Standards Act” on May 17, and ‘Workplace Violence in Georgia” on June 21.

Future LAW seminars at Coastal Georgia Community College in Brunswick will include ‘Coordinating the Triad of FMLA, ADA, and Worker’s Compensation” on May 8 and ‘Federal Labor and Employment Law Record Keeping” on Aug. 14.

Georgia Southern’s Continuing Education Center is certified as an HRCI Approved Provider, so individuals with (Senior) Professional in Human Resources (PHR/SPHR) certification may earn 1.5 recertification credit hours for each seminar.

The fee for each seminar is $69 per person. The fee will be reduced to $59 per person for anyone who registers for three or more seminars, and for three or more people from the same organization.
