Webinar Recording: COVID-19 and Beyond – Best Practices for Coordinating the FMLA and the ADA

Jennifer NelsonResources, Tools & Tactics Archives


Managing absence and disability is more challenging than ever in the midst of a global pandemic. The rules of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) still apply, and many employers now have the temporary provisions under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) added to the mix.

This webinar gave a full picture of the interaction of these laws and how they impact employees. We discussed the provisions under the FFCRA as well as what employers have been doing to support their employees with COVID-19-related coverage when the FFCRA doesn’t apply.  In addition, we also compared the similarities and differences in FMLA and ADA laws, and share insights into how these two laws overlap. Attendees can expect to walk away with best practices for coordinating these laws.
