Maintaining Repeated Requests for Leave

September 23

Learn how to identify problematic traps in your leave policies and procedures and how to fix them.

Many employers find it difficult to understand how they should properly address repeated request for leaves of absence. They also may not fundamentally understand the role that both the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) play in such a scenario. This topic will assist in further understanding the basic process of managing repeated requests for leave. The discussion of undue hardship and its effect on the employment relationship will be explored in detail, both as a necessary concept and the importance of its role in understanding reasonable accommodation issues. This material will address real-life scenarios and the various roles that the employer, employee, the employee’s physician, and others play in the management of these types of issues and potential complications.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to describe repeated requests as a concept.
  • You will be able to discuss the employer’s federal law obligations when faced with repeated requests for leave.
  • You will be able to identify the red flags for a potential ADA claim.
  • You will be able to review and troubleshoot your own internal employer leave policy.
