FMLA, ADA, and Worker’s Comp: The Highway of Laws and Understanding the Intersections

Often a supervisor might ask, is it a Worker’s Comp claim, or is it going to be covered under FMLA, or is the employee going to request an ADA accommodation, and HR's response may be YES!!  Each of these benefits functions separately yet they often intersect.  This section will equip you with the knowledge you need to be successful in guiding your employee through the interactive processes with these benefits.


  • Understand the laws and regulations surrounding FMLA, ADA, and Worker’s Compensation
  • Gain an understanding of how each of these benefits are separate yet at times intersect with one another based on the situation
  • Realize the manager’s role in the interactive process when dealing with these health-related issues

Presented by: Julie Byers, Benefits Administrator and Jennifer Kester, Assistant Director of Recruitment and Employment, HR
