Helping Clients Navigate the ADA and FMLA for Mental Health Conditions 2024

Product ID: CA3602R3
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

This program is an excerpt from the Employment Law Update 2023

Working together

Nearly 20% of adults in the U.S. have experienced mental illness. That’s almost 50 million people.1 When an employee is struggling with anxiety, attention deficit disorder, substance abuse, or other mental health conditions, their ability to perform their job can suffer. Employers must understand how to navigate both the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to help employees manage mental health conditions. 

At Helping Clients Navigate the ADA and FMLA for Mental Health Conditions, Daniel A. Kaplan and Katelynn Williams will provide guidance on:

  1. Which law applies – the ADA, FMLA, worker’s compensation, and/or state law equivalents
  2. Who is eligible for coverage under the ADA and FMLA
  3. EEOC and DOL guidance on mental health conditions under the ADA and FMLA
  4. Where the ADA and FMLA intersect

You’ll also come away with best practices for:

  • Analyzing eligibility under the ADA and FMLA
  • Requesting and reviewing medical information
  • Documentation
  • Responding to leave abuse by employees
