There is no doubt that medical issues and requests for leave of absence are a common nightmare for HR.  Moreover, recent statistics suggest that chronic diseases are some of the most debilitating illnesses that workers have.  Yet many employees are able to continue working while receiving treatment.  According to the EEOC, more than one million Americans are diagnosed with some form of cancer each year and aapproximately 40 percent of them are working-age adults in addition to numerous other chronic diseases.  In addition, nearly 10 million Americans have a history of some sort of chronic disease.  However, many managers are unsure what they are able to legally do and not do when an employee has a chronic disease.  Moreover, most managers dont even know what laws apply. 

So what laws do you as a manager need to know about and how can you ensure that you are in compliance with these laws?  This webinar will provide the answer to these and many more questions regarding how to avoid the legal pitfalls that chronic diseases in the workplace can create under the Americans with Disabilities Law, FMLA and GINA, the Genetic Information Nondisclosure Act.
