The Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”), and state workers’ compensation laws require employers to comply with a myriad of comprehensive and complicated obligations related to employees’ requests for medical or disability-related leave. This webinar will explore how these laws interact and what campus counsel can do to support institutional compliance and efficiency.
Topics will include:
- Overview of purposes and provisions of ADA, FMLA, and workers' compensation laws
- Process issues, including medical authorizations and return to work
- Intermittent leave, telework and wellness programs
- Faculty and tenure issues
This webinar will be of interest to general counsel and attorneys who advise colleges and universities on employment law matters and administrators who work with faculty and staff on personnel issues.
