Untangling the FMLA and ADA Overlap Puzzle to Avoid Employment Litigation

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Description:

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.

Vanessa G. Nelson

Vanessa G. Nelson, MSA, SPHR, CLRL is founder and President of award-winning Expert Human Resources, which she founded to help companies maintain employment law compliance, avoid workplace litigation, reduce costs, and increase revenue.

Vanessa established Expert Human Resources in 2009, after observing companies’ frustrations with complying with constantly changing employment laws as well as continually dealing with workplace litigations and fines. Vanessa realized that a lot of the litigious situations that businesses encountered could be avoided by their being proactive and implementing updated polices and applying them correctly. Vanessa also recognized that many companies could not afford a full-time HR person, or department, to assist in maintaining compliance with employment laws, as well as applying policies and practices correctly; therefore she established a “portable HR” to accommodate those businesses.

Vanessa is a results-oriented HR Consultant with a unique background in business management, spanning over 29 years at two major medical centers in Michigan. Her expertise includes: HR audits, labor relations, employment laws, employee relations, workplace investigations, and policies and procedures. Additionally, Ms. Nelson has worked with companies to implement processes to improve conflict management and employee relations and conducted harassment training to improve company efficiencies. She has helped companies save hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Ms. Nelson received her Master of Science in Administration/Human Resources Management from Central Michigan University, and a Bachelor in Business Management from Northwood University. She holds the Certified Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) credential from Human Resources Certification Institute, Certified Labor Relations Leader (CLRL) from Michigan State University, and is Six Sigma White Belt certified.
