Job Abandonment and Disability Benefits

Event Host: 
National Business Institute
Tuesday, December 10, 2013 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Although job abandonment is easy to prove when an employer has appropriate policies in place, the termination of an employee on temporary total disability who fails to come to work can greatly complicate things. If an employer has a straightforward job abandonment policy and an attorney who thoroughly understands the ins and outs of the situation, it is much easier to prove that job abandonment occurred and that the termination was not retaliatory. Anthony Natale, an attorney in the Workers' Compensation Department at Marshall Dennehey, will address the following topics:

  • Effectively handle situations where termination of an employee on temporary total disability could be construed as retaliatory.
  • Better prove your client's case by learning both plaintiff and defense litigation strategies for job abandonment cases involving disability benefits.
  • Evaluate employer job abandonment policies to determine if they contain suitable grounds to terminate no-show employees who receive temporary total disability benefits.
