    FMLA: To Leave or Not To Leave?
    The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) can provide benefits to both employers and employees, however it can also be very complicated and create potential risks if not administered correctly.  In addition, FMLA situations can become even more complicated when Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and workers compensation accommodations are involved.

    Andie Gordman- SilverStone Group
    This session will provide an overview of the requirements of the FMLA, best practices for administration and a checklist to ensure your organization is in compliance with the regulations. 

    Nichole Mohning- Cutler Law Firm
    Case studies will be reviewed to show the complexities of these situations and explain some of the most common mistakes and how to avoid them.  We will also address why non-covered organizations should have leave policies that set out the terms and conditions for leave to provide protection for the employee and employer. 

    Amy DeJong- SilverStone Group
    Key questions surrounding FMLA and Work Comp will be answered as we continue to review employer compliance responsibilities with the law.

    Join the Revolution to Re-Humanize the Workplace!
    Gain the practical knowledge, skills, and inspiration to lead positive change at your workplace. Leave with an action plan and the support you need to put it into practice.

    Break Out of Your Silo
    The Fusion 2.0 Conference brings together forward-thinking professionals who want to leverage the business advantage of putting people first.

    At most organizations, people in HR, Wellness, Organizational Effectiveness & Leadership Development, and Safety & Risk Management work in silos, and often end up undermining each other. We want to change that.

    Come experience a completely different kind of conference where we will break down the walls and intentionally align our efforts!

    Practical & Actionable
    Our Breakout Sessions and Learning Labs offer you hands-on training and practical tools from a variety of disciplines.

    You’ll leave with an implementation plan to apply what you learn and practical post-conference support, including follow-up recommendations, tips, and an event learning summary. 

    Integrated & People-Centered
    This event brings together forward-thinkers from multiple disciplines to collaborate and learn how to develop an integrated approach to organizational and employee wellbeing.

    When organizations put people first, everyone thrives!

    Rejuvenating & Inspiring
    Inspiration from our Keynote Speakers, insight from successful organizations in our Innovators Series, and support from like-minded peers are just a few of the ways Fusion 2.0 will leave you feeling energized.

    The daily schedule also includes plenty of time for reflection, recreation, and purposeful networking activities.

    Discover Why Putting People First Is Good for Business
    A revolution is already underway in the business world, one where leadership, culture, safety, and wellbeing are interdependent. The result is a more humane employee experience and an improved bottom line. At Fusion 2.0, you’ll join forward-thinkers and successful leaders who are breaking the mold by putting people first at work.

    Be Inspired: Keynote Speakers
    Our speakers will challenge your thinking and spark transformational change.
