Speaker:  Nicholas Haynes, Employment Law Associate Attorney

Topic:       FMLA and other Leaves of Absence for Employees.   

Nicholas Haynes is an Employment Law Associate Attorney at Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith LLP in Denver.  The firm represents employers in Colorado and nationwide in a number of different practice areas, including corporate governance and employment law.  Nick was previously a Managing Attorney at Employer’s Council, Inc.

In his presentation, Nick will address the United States Department of Labor, Wage & Hour Division’s Family and Medical Leave Act and other protected leaves that employees working in Colorado enjoy depending on the size of their employer.  He will address the legal obligations that affect even small and medium sized employers who are not covered by the FMLA.

Nick will also explore the implications for employers when an employee is not yet eligible for a protected leave or has exhausted a protected leave.  Attendees will learn about what they can do to manage their employee’s leave while staying proactive during the time their employees are out.  Compliance and avoiding litigation come first, but Nick will also include the importance of maintaining positive employee relations while administering leaves.

The cost of your first chapter visit/lunch is only $10!  Subsequent meeting costs will be $25.00 for Colorado APA chapter members.  The Non-member cost is $35.00.
