Learn to determine when an employee's medical leave should shift from FMLA to ADA and how to avoid abuse issues while remaining compliant with state and federal laws.

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) has challenged both experienced and new HR professionals since it became law. Recent changes to the FMLA and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) have increased this confusion. Understanding the various leaves that run concurrently and/or consecutively, and navigating the compliance maze adds a level of complexity that boggles the most seasoned professional. This material shall sort through the applicable issues in a clear manner and provide practical advice for successfully resolving leave of absence questions. It is very easy to miss significant opportunities to control the medical absences in your workplace when you are confused about coordinating the differing requirements. We will also explain the difference between notification, required documentation and the confirmation of your company's ability to accommodate without undue hardship.

By introducing simple compliance strategies, you will clearly understand the intent of both the FMLA and ADAAA when accommodating requests for intermittent leave that include a request for an accommodation.
