When FMLA ends and ADA begins. The FMLA/ADA Crossover: Coordination, Management, and Compliance Strategies
This 90-minute training will assist you in understanding the complex interaction between FMLA and ADA (AA) as it relates to intermittent leave requests with an underlying accommodation. In addition, we will clarify and discuss strategies for managing the transition from FMLA to ADA, concurrent ADA compliance requirements when designating FMLA, and the significant differences between the compliance requirements.
Why Should You Attend:
Do you refrain from terminating employees because you are concerned about running afoul with either the FMLA or ADA and do not want a lawsuit? This interactive Webinar workshop will help you understand when and how you can have confidence to terminate employees if they are not complying with notification and intermittent leaves as they relate to both FMLA and the ADA. Learn when enough is enough, and how to clearly document the process to avoid costly lawsuits.
This webinar provides an overview of areas in which the biggest mistakes are made. It is an opportunity for HR and Payroll professionals to learn strategies for consistent application of compliance regulations. We will cover the significant differences between the FMLA and ADA notification process and the medical certification documentation required to determine eligibility for leave. We will also explain the difference between notification, required documentation and the confirmation of your company’s ability to accommodate without undue hardship. This webinar will introduce simple compliance strategies, to help you clearly understand the intent of both the FMLA and ADAAA when accommodating requests for intermittent leave that include a request for an accommodation.
We will also discuss these aspects as they apply to intermittent FMLA, ADA accommodation requests, and Workers’ Compensation light duty as it relates to the need to obtain medical documentation under both the FMLA and the ADAAAA.
