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
Hosted by Ford & Harrison

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.
