Time off for a headache?  Intermittent leave for arthritis?  More so than ever, employees are requesting accommodations in the workplace for what arguably may be disabilities under the Americans With Disabilities Act.  This presentation will focus on what is and is not a disability under the ADA, comparing the ADA with the Family Medical Leave Act, and providing best practices and recommended policies to help handle the ADA’s required “interactive process” that employers must engage in when an employee requests an accommodation.  Professionals will also learn the dangers that can be caused  by failing to document the interactive process, and best practices to limit liability when things don’t go as planned. 


  • Summary of Current ADA laws
  • Comparing and Contrasting ADA and FMLA 
  • Understanding importance of interactive process
  • Effective use of interactive process and identifying best practices and policies
  • Hypothetical situations with examples
  • Question and Answer
