ADA & FMLA Compliance Manual

This publication is now available for shipping in both searchable CD and hard copy formats.

In April 2014, NELI hosted the nation's most comprehensive update of legal developments and practical advice on questions regarding ADA and FMLA compliance, a program unique to NELI. On Day One, special focus will be given to the latest developments under the ADA Amendments Act and the EEOC's regulatory changes to the definition of “disability,” including practical training tips for supervisors to avoid "regarding" an individual as disabled, the latest court decisions on "qualification standard" issues, and important evidence concerning whether an individual is "qualified," and more. The issues of “reasonable accommodation,” direct threat, and conduct rules will be extensively addressed as well. Day One will also provide a special presentation by our EEOC faculty on the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), including current implementation of the EEOC’s 2010 Final Regulations.

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 managing the medical certification process, the application of GINA's safe harbor language to FMLA documentation, practical tips to curb intermittent leave abuse, and more. Issues concerning the interaction between the ADA, FMLA and other leave laws will be covered as well.

The chapter headings below reflect the agenda of this important annual program. We are grateful to our distinguished panel of faculty members for their contributions to this newly revised course manual.
