In this program unique to NELI, we bring together a distinguished panel, including EEOC representatives, to discuss every major aspect of evolving ADA and FMLA law.
On Day One, we will focus on the latest litigation/agency developments under the ADA Amendments Act concerning the definition of “disability,” including practical training tips for supervisors to avoid "regarding" an individual as disabled, the latest decisions involving the meaning of "qualified," including "qualification standard" issues, and "essential functions," including the importance of accurate job descriptions, and whether handling stress, attendance, lifting and getting along with others are considered "essential." We will also cover the latest developments on the emerging definition of “reasonable," including whether cost/benefit and medical necessity is relevant, what sparks the accommodation interactive process, how to document it, the most recent developments on leave, schedule modifications, reassignment, etc. "Direct Threat" and conduct rules will be addressed as well. Day One will also provide an update by our EEOC faculty on the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), including the latest GINA cases and practical guidance for changes in workplace practices to comply with GINA.
Day Two commences with a session on requesting medical information under the ADA and emerging developments concerning voluntary wellness programs under GINA and the ADA. The FMLA Update will provide practical guidance in light of recent case law developments, including important coverage and eligibility issues, the impact of Windsor, in loco parentis status and caring for a family member on vacation, managing the medical certification process and much more. Discussion of the most critical overlap issues between the ADA, FMLA and other leave laws will be covered as well. Day Two will conclude with an interactive ADA/FMLA Case Study.
All program participants will receive a copy of our ADA & FMLA Compliance Manual - both in a hard copy and on a searchable CD, which will be newly revised for this program. Our California programs will feature distinctions between California and Federal law wherever appropriate.
This program will provide between 12-14.5 CLE/HRCI/CEU hours, depending upon the jurisdiction.
