Each year SMAHRA (Southern MN Area Human Resource Association) selects the latest hot topics affecting local business leaders and brings together an expert line up of professionals to keep local businesses current and up-to-date on issues. 

Julia Corbett and Beth Serrill will be speaking about the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) and FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) intersection.  These two laws are continuously updated and keeping up is a challenge. 

The number of employees who are affected by or protected by these laws is growing.  It is essential that managers, supervisors, and HR professionals understand the intricacies of and interplay between these two laws to assure legal compliance as well as to provide employees with the benefits and protections each law provides.  There are many special considerations and circumstances under each of these laws.  Having a solid understanding of the law, cases and decisions can help HR professionals face each challenging situation more effectively without interfering with the rights of employees.

This year’s Employment Law Seminar is on September 13 at the Country Inn & Suites in Mankato.    See the link below for details.
