Description

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) were implemented to improve the lives of employees. FMLA allows eligible employees to take job-protected leave for their own serious health conditions or to care for sick family members. The ADA was intended to ensure “equality of opportunity” and “economic self-sufficiency” for individuals with disabilities. Yet both laws have proven challenging for employers. These laws are complex with rules that can be confusing and often misunderstood. This webinar is designed to provide information, guidelines, and examples of the key concepts under both laws.

Highlights

  • Definitions of key terms under the FMLA, including covered employer, eligible employee, and serious health condition
  • Timing and types of leave under the FMLA
  • Calculating leave time under the FMLA
  • Employer and employee notice requirements
  • The definition of a “disability” under ADA
  • An employer’s obligation to provide employees with a reasonable accommodation under the ADA
  • Guidance on engaging in the interactive process
  • Dos and don’ts of medical certifications
  • The interplay between the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act
