Are ADA and FMLA Employee Leave Requests Giving You A Headache?

Perhaps no area of employment law gives public and private employers more difficulty than understanding the legal obligations to provide unpaid leave under the ADA and managing intermittent leave under the FMLA. 

Join us January 25, 2018 as we answer the practical questions employers are facing on a daily basis, including:

  • How much ADA leave is required to “reasonable accommodate” an employee who is unable to work?
  • What are your obligations to provide “intermittent leave” for FMLA sporadic and unpredictable absences or tardies?
  • When can you contact medical providers if FMLA and ADA certifications are not clear?

The webinar will begin at 2:00 am. and end at 3:00 pm.

As always, there is no charge for our webinar. We hope you can join us.
