The FMLA Final Regulations are technical and legalistic. Understand what a "qualifying exigency" really is. Learn how to define a "covered servicemember" and what leave employers are required to provide. Can you contact the employee's health-care professional to authenticate or clarify the FMLA medical certification? Can the employee's supervisor? Become informed about the changes required in medical certifications and the definitions of "serious health condition".
The ADA Amendments drastically broaden the coverage of the ADA and will likely result in an increased amount of litigation under the ADAAA. Learn which legal precedent the amendments overturned and understand the changes to the "regarded as" definitions. Become familiar with the list of "major life activities" set forth in the amendments and whether episodic or conditions in remission are disabilities within the meaning of the ADAAA.
