Get Practical Guidance on What You Need to do to Comply with the ADA and FMLA

In the past few years, we've seen the number of EEOC charges for disability discrimination increase, sharply. And, we've seen a sharp increase in litigation regarding disability cases. Why? The ADA Amendments Act, made official in 2011, has essentially "opened the flood gates" for disability claims, as the definition of "disability" is far different from what it used to be. And, when an employee is out on the Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and runs out of time, well, what now? This is the confusing overlap of the laws that can be challenging and risky.

Today, the ADA is particularly complicated for supervisors and managers who must interact with employee’s every day, to set performance and behavioral expectations. And, HR professionals must act as the internal consultants to advise managers on issues related to poor performing employees, which often are intertwined with FMLA, disability, and reasonable accommodation issues.

To learn about your compliance obligations, in easy-to-understand (non-lawyer lingo) you won't want to miss this session. Seasoned HR Consultant and Educator, Natalie Ivey, will walk you through your compliance obligations and provide practical guidance on what you need to do to comply with the ADA. And, she will help you navigate the more common issues when handling the overlap of the FMLA and ADA.
