Most subcontractors understand that when an employee suffers an injury at work, workers’ compensation insurance will provide coverage for the claim. But when an employee suffers an injury at work and is unable to come back to work, other laws are implicated.
In the new video-on-demand, “The Devil’s Triangle: Understanding the Overlap Between the FMLA, ADA and Workers’ Compensation Laws,” available from the Foundation of the American Subcontractors Association, presenter Philip J. Siegel, Hendrick, Phillips, Salzman & Siegel, provides an overview of the interplay between the Family Medical Leave Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and workers’ compensation laws, all of which may come into play when an injured employee will need to miss work. In the on-demand video, Siegel explains the employer’s compliance obligations under what is often referred to as “The Devil’s Triangle.”
“The Devil’s Triangle: Understanding the Overlap Between the FMLA, ADA and Workers’ Compensation Laws” (Item #8110) is $65 for ASA members and $95 for nonmembers. This and other on-demand videos are available through FASA’s Contractors’ Knowledge Depot.
