FMLA Extension: When 12 Weeks Is Not Enough

Learn to determine when an employee's medical leave should shift from FMLA to ADA and how to avoid abuse issues while remaining compliant.

The FMLA permits eligible employees to take up to 12 weeks of job-protected unpaid time off for their own or an immediate family member has a serious medical condition. This topic will explore the rights and obligations an employer has when an employee is unable to return to work at the conclusion of the 12-week period. The material will also cover the scope of the FMLA, the interaction between the FMLA and other leave time available to employees, the interplay between the FMLA and the Americans with Disabilities Act, and how and when a failure to return from FMLA leave may result in job termination.
