Webinar Recording: The Truth About ADAAA

DMECResources, Tools & Tactics Archives

The expansion of the ADA in 2008 with the passage of the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) dramatically changed the absence management landscape by requiring employers to consider leave as a reasonable accommodation. The ADAAA, in conjunction with the FMLA and other applicable state and municipal leaves, has created a perplexing intersection of legislation that employers are challenged to comply with. Many employers are now seeking third-party support with the administration of ADA policies to ensure compliance and to appropriately integrate their absence management programs. In this webinar, we explored some of the leave administration options currently available, which can ease the complexity that employers experience with integration.
