Read Frequently Asked Questions

This FMLA and ADA training program will discuss why it is crucial for employers to have at least a basic knowledge of the laws to apply them correctly and avoid litigation. Both the FMLA and ADA are confusing laws on their own. When there is an overlap between the laws, it can be even more confusing, frustrating, and almost impossible to manipulate. The key to untangling ADA and FMLA is to understand the obligations under each statute.
