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 ADA brings new challenges in employees’ use of both the ADA and the FMLA, now is the time to be prepared.
