Employee Leave Under the FMLA and ADA
Navigating Overlapping and Conflicting Leave Laws to Avoid Government Action and Worker Lawsuits
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will provide employers' counsel with best practices to reduce the risk of lawsuits or government action for violating employee leave requirements under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Interplay between FMLA and ADA
- Applicability based on number of employees
- Applicability based on situation
- Limits on leave time
- Paid leave
- Repayment of benefits by employee
- Related workers’ compensation issues
- Best practices to resolve conflicts between competing laws and minimize liability
The panel will review these and other key questions:
- What are the most common types of employee leave abuse—and how can employers respond to them without violating the law?
- How can employers ensure compliance in situations where they must navigate multiple laws regulating employee leave?
- How have recent changes to the FMLA and ADA impacted the administration of employee leave?
Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
