How the ADA and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Intersect

Although the ​Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA​) and FMLA differ in both subject and scope, employees with disabilities or serious health conditions should be aware of both laws. Cases involving disabilities or medical leave frequently involve both FMLA and ADA claims, so it is important for employees to know what protections are offered and how the two laws interact.

The article, "How The ADA And FMLA Intersect And Why This Is Important For Employees", provides overviews of both laws and discusses seeking medical leave under the ADA and FMLA.
