The COVID-19 pandemic has left an indelible impact on the workplace, causing employers to deal with a wave of medical leaves and a shift to virtual workplace. As a result, Florida employers face a host of compliance issues in navigating leave and accommodation issues.

In this webinar, we will tackle the most common and difficult leave and accommodation scenarios that employers have encountered during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will provide practical suggestions on how employers can address these situations, including any unique responses given Florida-specific COVID-related laws.

Through the use of case studies (and maybe a tiny bit of humor), we will cover:

  • Is an employee who tests positive for COVID-19 eligible for FMLA leave?
  • Whether FMLA leave applies when an employee claims they cannot return to work during the pandemic because they have an underlying medical condition.
  • Can an employee take FMLA leave to sit at home during a pandemic with a family member who is considered high risk?
  • Is physical presence at work critical anymore? Handling work-from-home requests during the pandemic.​
