Managing Compliance in 2016 - FMLA Evolution, ADAAA Compliance, and Legislative Trends

Signed into law in 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) sought to prohibit discrimination based on disability by requiring employers to make "reasonable accommodations" to employees with disabilities. With the passing of 2009's Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA), the scope and impact of the original Act was materially expanded: under the ADAAA provisions, fully 19 percent of working Americans are classified as living with a disability. Key elements of the regulatory landscape will impact employers and change the scope of their exposure. These include the recent Supreme Court decision altering the scope of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA); more than 135 federal, state and municipal leave laws; President Obama's proposal to establish paid sick leave at the federal level and proposals pending in 13 states for paid family leave.
Of these, the ADAAA is currently the most significant as it broadened the definition of a disability and reinforced that leave is a qualified accommodation. This has made things very complicated for employers, since employeeswith health conditions who exhaust their leave under FMLA may now be entitled to extend their leave under the ADA/ADAAA.
This webinar will focus on employer compliance, case law, and industry trends for FMLA/ADA.
