Workers’ Compensation, ADA, and FLMA – When Leaves Collide!

The Federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides leave for qualifying individuals for their own serious health condition or to care for a close relative. Employees injured on the job may qualify under the Workers’ Compensation program. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides leaves as a reasonable accommodation of a qualifying disability. Sometimes these leaves run concurrently, sometimes they don’t, and sometimes one leave type will then require a second type be offered.  Don’t forget COBRA, which governs when an employee is entitled to continuation of health care benefits at their cost.

Sound confusing? It is – and the laws overlap adding to the confusion. In this webinar Kathryn Carlson, SPHR will provide an overview of the regulations and provide expert advice on effectively managing various employee types of employee leaves, even when they collide.  Kathryn will also share the answers to the top ten questions on leave management, taken from the thousands of questions KPA HR consultants answer for clients each year. Audience members will also have a time to submit their questions.

This webinar will be presented by VP of Human Resource Management Products, Kathryn Carlson. Kathryn has over 25 years of experience in human resource management. For the past thirteen years she has focused on developing HR software and programs to improve efficiency, reduce risk, and ensure compliance.

The FTC Strikes Again – And This Time It’s a Game Changer

Last September, the Federal Trade Commission launched what turned out to be the most substantial auto dealer enforcement action in the agency’s history. While most of the FTC’s earlier cases have focused solely on dealer advertising, this action covered over a dozen different Unfair and Deceptive Acts & Practices violations. And unlike previous cases where there were no initial monetary penalties, this time it resulted in over $3 million in restitution for the dealer group involved.

In this informative presentation we’ll examine each of the FTC’s claims in detail and discuss best practices on how your dealership can avoid being targeted by federal and state regulators. The game is changing and it pays to be prepared.

This webinar will be presented by KPA’s Senior Sales and Finance Compliance Specialist, Jim Radogna. Jim joined KPA in 2014, focusing on the Sales & Finance Compliance areas of product configuration, training content, auditing, and compliance hotline development. He uses his knowledge and industry experience to develop unique, no-nonsense compliance an reputation management solutions for automobile dealerships of all sizes. He has spent over 15 years in dealership management in diversified roles including sales manager, F&I director, general manager, and training director.

Embracing Age in your Safety Culture – Baby Boomers to Millennials

Today’s workforce is undergoing a major change. Baby boomers are beginning to retire, meaning that Generation X and Millennials will make up most the workforce. The young adults entering the workforce today come in with a different set of skills, culture, and attitude. These generations will ultimately be responsible for production in this world, so how can we get them to buy into safety? Job safety can also be a big factor for young adults who are looking at job positions. They are prepared to challenge and introduce new ideas.

In addition, some people in the workforce do not have the opportunity to retire as early as prior generations. With age comes additional safety considerations, and senior employees can be more susceptible to serious injuries.

Is your organization’s safety culture ready to embrace a new generation?
