Session 1: Navigating the Employer’s Accommodation Obligations Under the Amended ADA
Requests for reasonable accommodation under the amended Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) present new challenges for employers and the possibility of a lawsuit if handled improperly. The ADA requires reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities, but now the requests may not only be beyond the capacity of the employer to provide, they may come from an employee with no current impairment. How can you comply with the law and avoid facing a lawsuit?
Session 2: Surviving the Alphabet Jungle: Coordinating FMLA, ADA, Workers’ Comp and Other Paid Leaves
With the rising cost of benefits, employers must be able to coordinate their benefits programs to reduce costly overlapping and duplication. Employers must understand not only the different purposes and requirements of the various leave laws but also how they interact. And, since the amended ADA brings new challenges in employees’ use of both the ADA and the FMLA, now is the time to be prepared.
