The Intersection of the ADA and FMLA; Which Applies and When

SepSeptember 25 2024

11:00am - 12:30pm


Presenters: Patti Bennett Riddle, Medical Leaves Administration at Cornell University Division of Human Resources, Joe Zesski, Program Manager Northeast ADA Center

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) are two laws which afford the right for employees with disabilities to take leave when necessary due to their disability. However, the when, how, and for whom of these laws is different even while there is some overlap. Join Joe Zesski of the Northeast ADA and Patti Bennett Riddle of Cornell University’s Division of Human Resources for an informative webinar about this important and often confusing topic. The presentation will begin with an overview of the ADA and FMLA in regard to leave. This will be followed by a conversation on the insights gained by Patti Bennett Riddle during her career in human resources. She will share how best practices for employers have evolved, pitfalls for employers to avoid, and lessons learned through experience and observation in the field.

Live Spanish interpretation will not be provided, but a Spanish transcript of the webinar is available upon request following the event.
