Americans with Disabilities Act

Managing employee absence is complex.

It’s even more complex when you try to stay on top of the ever-changing regulatory landscape and administrative requirements set by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Add in the overlap with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and you have quite the administrative headache.

This section is geared to give you guidance during the process. However, since most companies have specific leave policies, we recommend that you contact your Human Resources representative to learn more about how these policies impact the way absences are managed in your company.
