FMLA/ADA Training for Supervisors and Managers

Coming in April 2019

According to the 2018 DMEC Employer Leave Management Survey, training supervisors and managers ranks as the top challenge for employers of all sizes and industries. In addition, the Department of Labor cites supervisor training as a top area of non-compliance for employers.

To address this critical area of concern, DMEC will release a new training program, FMLA/ADA Training for Supervisors and Managers in April 2019. The new training is intended to provide front-line managers and supervisors with high-level information about how to identify a potential Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) request by an employee and provide insight into the employee’s rights and responsibilities once an event has been identified. Check out a short preview of the training below.

What’s Included

The training program includes a pre-recorded, 25-minute animated video that walks through the necessary information a supervisor needs to know about the FMLA and the ADA. By the end of the video, managers will come away with a foundational understanding of the company’s responsibilities as well as their own responsibility as a supervisor. They will be able to recognize when and to whom the laws apply and be able to direct employees appropriately.

Following the video is a 10-question quiz to test knowledge. Upon successful completion of the video and quiz, supervisors and managers will be awarded a certificate of completion. Two downloadable PDF roadmaps for the FMLA and the ADA are included as additional resources for supervisors and managers to refer to when a potential FMLA or ADA request is made.

Pricing & Delivery

DMEC’s FMLA/ADA Training for Supervisors and Managers is intended to be an annual training, similar to other compliance training programs such as anti-harassment and diversity/inclusion. It is an ideal solution for organizations of all sizes. Subscription pricing is based on the total number of employees in the organization, and discounts are available to DMEC organizational members.

Once a company has purchased the annual subscription, an unlimited number of supervisors and managers will be able to sign up and take the training course through DMEC’s online learning management system.

Customized Landing Page

The ability to purchase a company-specific training landing page is available for an additional fee. This option will allow a company’s supervisors and managers to enter the training course through a landing page that includes the organization’s logo and a customized introduction to the organization’s FMLA and ADA processes.

The introductory paragraph can include information such as who administers these programs, the administrator’s contact information, website or intranet links, and any additional requirements for employees who might utilize the benefits of these programs (i.e., concurrent utilization of remaining vacation/sick/PTO time).

Customized Landing Page


In addition to issuing downloadable certificates of attendance for supervisors and managers who have successfully completed the course, DMEC will enable a designated contact for each organization to review registration and tracking reports throughout the year to manage progress for their supervisors and managers.
