Disability Management for Supervisors
(Required course in Supervisory Certificate Program)
Ever wonder what your responsibilities are as a supervisor or manager regarding employees with disabilities?  Then you have come to the right place.  This course will help you understand the major Federal and State Laws (FMLA, ADA, FEHA, CFRA, etc) that cover employees with disabilities and the various different obligations you have as a supervisor or manager.  Learn why hiring, managing and effectively communicating with an employee with a disability makes for a successful working environment!

Family and Medical Leave
What is Family and Medical Leave (FML)? Who qualifies and why are we required to designate FML? Let us help you navigate the complexities of Family and Medical leave and demystify the process. We’ll discuss when you’re required to declare FML -- and why it’s important!  We will also review best practices when employees are on leave and what to do when they return to work.
