Leave in the Time of COVID: Managing Employee Leave Requests under FMLA, ADA

Course Description

Even the simplest leave requests can be complex and nuanced, posing challenges to even the most seasoned Leave Administrators. The possibility of costly, drawn-out litigation only adds to the stress and pressure. Add to that: most employees making leave requests will be eligible for protection under the FMLA, ADA and, as well as State medical leave and other COVID-19 emergency laws.

In this session, our speaker Margie Faulk will discuss key, hot-button compliance issues and share some Best Practices for managing a workforce while staying in compliance during a pandemic.


  • Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), American with Disabilities Act (ADA), and Workers’ Comp Basics
  • What is the Role of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) when it comes to COVID-19
  • Where FMLA, ADA, and Workers’ Comp overlap, and where/how they differ
  • How does the Department of Labor (DOL) determine their audit efforts during COVID-19
  • Can be paid leave programs to be integrated with current FMLA regulations
  • What it means to be “unable” to work or telework
  • What if employees are afraid to return to work
  • How a telecommuting policy will help mitigate issues with a remote workplace
  • COVID and ADA considerations
  • Post-FFCRA obligations and considerations
  • Screening for COVID
  • Vaccines and the impact within the workplace and what Employers should do


Unpaid leave and Paid-leave regulations are getting complicated. As support grows for (and some business groups push against) a national law mandating paid family leave and paid sick days, some states, cities, and individual organizations are out in front—adopting measures of their own. This proliferation and mishmash of regulations can make staying in compliance challenges.

This training will identify their current leave programs and how the state regulations integrate or clash.
