Untangling the Web: Leave Communications With Employees Under the FMLA and ADA

OnDemand Webinar (64 minutes)

Learn the ins and outs of the FMLA's communications requirements and related ADA considerations.This topic will cover the necessary communications from employees to notify employers of the need for leave, leave changes, and leave status; and from employers to address FMLA rights, notice, leave administration, and ADA reasonable accommodation considerations. Many employers routinely describe compliance with the FMLA as somewhat, or very difficult, with respect to communications requirements and proper documentation, especially when ADA issues overlap. This topic will review communications requirements at each stage of the FMLA process, and how the ADA may add to and complicate the analysis and communications needed. The material will include how to evaluate and improve FMLA and related ADA policies and practices to meet communications requirements and current practices.
