Calendar year 2019 has delivered several FMLA and ADA cases that make us stop and say “hmmm”. We will explore several cases that show the lengths some employees will go to abuse the FMLA and ADA. We also will highlight cases where the employer’s actions show a distinct lack of understanding on how these two very important laws work. We will close the webinar by listing some basic “best practices” that will assist you in staying clear of FMLA and ADA problems.
