The Employment Law Bermuda Triangle: Safely Navigating the Confluence of the ADA, FMLA, and Worker's Compensation Laws

Wednesday, November 12, 2014 | 12:00 PM (CDT)


The Bermuda Triangle may not appear on a map, but anyone who has dealt with the confluence of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Family and Medical Leave Act, and Workers' Compensation issues would have reason to believe that it exists. Dealing with the intersecting laws can have experienced business people and human resource professionals feeling lost. Our experienced employment lawyers will give you the knowledge and tools to ensure that you can live to tell the tale if you find yourself in the triangle.


On our Agenda:

  • Workers' Compensation Concepts
  • FMLA
  • The 2008 Amendments to the ADA
  • The EEOC's Focus on Leave Policies as a Violation of the ADA
  • Tips and Tactics when in the Bermuda Triangle
