Map Unavailable

Date(s) - 13/11/2018
9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Tuesday, Nov. 13
9:00 am PT | 12:00 pm ET

Organized by the Disability Management Employer Coalition (DMEC)

Caregiving impacts nearly forty million families in the United States, with 6 out of 10 working Americans caring for a family member age 50 and older. But it’s not just about caring for the elderly — “working caregivers” are increasingly challenged to care for dependent children, a spouse/partner, siblings and yes, even family pets.

This presentation will review data on the impact to an employer’s bottom line from “working caregivers.” This can range from presenteeism, distraction and intermittent time out, to full absences depending on the situation. Learn how proactive employers, suppliers and the medical community are implementing creative strategies to maintain productivity and employee morale while balancing consistent FMLA and ADA practices in support of the working caregivers.

This webinar will be 90 minutes to accommodate additional Q&A.

Learning Objectives

  • Review the most common care giving situations (e.g., serious medical conditions) to understand what to expect in terms of frequency and duration of absences.
  • Discover how to develop effective strategies through HR programming and policy change to create a supportive working culture.
  • Explore best practices and resources related to working caregivers, and how these interact with the ADA, FMLA and Paid Family Leaves.
