Both the FMLA and ADA are confusing laws on their own. When there is an overlap between the laws, it can be even more confusing, frustrating, and almost impossible to manipulate. The key to untangling ADA and FMLA is to understand the obligations under each statute. Therefore, it is crucial for employers to have at least a basic knowledge of the laws to apply them correctly and avoid litigation.
Employers deal with multiple obligations under federal, and state laws when employees take time off for illnesses and injuries. Many illnesses and injuries are FMLA serious health conditions as well as covered under the American’s with Disabilities Act. The same employee illness or injury that is a serious health condition may also constitute a “disability” and bring with it another obligation under the ADA.
