Practical Tips in Navigating the FMLA and ADA in the Context of a Workers' Compensation Claim


Disabled for purposes of workers’ compensation may be different than ADA or FMLA.

For workers’ compensation the employee’s disability can be considered total or partial, and the employee with the disability is considered injured and unable to work and earn wages. Unlike ADA and FMLA, workers’ compensation is focused on wage loss and payment for medical treatment. This video reviews the interplay of qualifying disabilities, medical inquiries and examinations, returning to work, and discusses the importance of understanding that leave depends on the laws of the state in which the employee is working.
