HR Summer School to Cover Top 3 Toughest Topics in Employment Law

The Delaware Employment Law Blog will be posting a series of “Back-to-Basics” articles over the next couple of months.  Each class in the series will focus on the basics of the covered topic.  The posts can be printed and assembled for a handy reference.

After much thought, we’ve selected the topics that we’ll cover.  We’ve decided to tackle what we think are the Top 3 Toughest Topics in Employment Law, the ADA, the FMLA, and the FLSA.  These are the statutes that give our clients the biggest headaches but we’re going to try to reduce the agony with the Back-to-Basic series. 

There will be several mini-topics in each course.  Generally, we expect the “schedule” to look something like this:

ADA 101

  • 101  Who Is Covered?
  • 102  What Does the ADA Require?
  • 103  What Is a “Reasonable Accommodation”?
  • 104  What Certification Can I Require?
  • 105  Special Disciplinary Problems and Abuses

FMLA 101

  • 101  Who Is Covered?
  • 102  What Is a “Serious Medical Condition”?
  • 103  Do I Have to Act If I Think an Employee May Qualify for FMLA Leave?
  • 104  How Do I Handle Intermittent Leave?
  • 105  Special Disciplinary Problems and Abuses

FLSA 101

  • 101  What Does the FLSA Actually Cover?
  • 102  What Is the Difference Between Exempt and Nonexempt?
  • 103  What Types of Exemptions Are There?
  • 104  How Do I Determine If My Employees Are Exempt?
  • 105  Special Disciplinary Problems and Abuses

Get those pencils sharpened and we’ll see you in class!
