2019 Employment Law Series: What Employers Need to Know About Revised ADA and FMLA Regulations

Presented by Heidi Eckert, Karen Milnet, Matthew Banocy, Jamie Mahler Westbrook

About the Program

Join FordHarrison St. Louis attorneys for a two-part webinar series discussing important employment law updates that will impact your business in 2019. Employers often struggle to comply with their legal obligation to provide job-protected leave from employment. Because there is no single, uniform rule governing leave, understanding the core requirements of employee leave law helps employers avoid penalties and costly litigation. In Part I of this series, join Heidi Eckert, Karen Milner, Matt Banocy, and Jamie Westbrook for an in-depth discussion on the interplay between the FMLA and ADA and how new case law has impacted the implementation of these laws throughout the workplace. Topics to be covered include: 

  • Eligibility for FMLA and ADA leave /accommodations and when employees may be eligible for coverage under multiple laws; 
  • Leave and job duty accommodation requirements under the FMLA and the ADA; 
  • Best practices for managing FMLA and ADA and common supervisor/manager mistakes; and 
  • The impact of new case law on FMLA and ADA accommodations.
