National trends related to aging, obesity, deconditioning, disability and drugs (polypharmacy) have resulted in occupational disability spiraling upward at an unprecedented pace, with healthcare costs in the U.S. topping $3.3 trillion. Superimposed on these issues is possibly the single largest employee challenge in today’s workplace: malingering employees attempting to “game the system” with leave and accommodation requests.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), in tandem with workers’ compensation and other state laws, often make it treacherous to work through these frequently encountered issues. In an engaging 60 minutes, Dr. Richard Bunch, a nationally renowned speaker, physical therapist and ergonomics consultant, will present a proven three-prong approach to preventing, identifying and managing injuries and malingering that will help employers overcome these challenges while in full compliance with federal and state laws. You’ll learn invaluable proactive strategies that can be applied immediately to create a corporate wide program that will improve employee safety and engagement and help prevent malingering behaviors. This is a webinar you simply cannot afford to miss!
