FMLA: To Leave or Not To Leave?
The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) can provide benefits to both employers and employees, however it can also be very complicated and create potential risks if not administered correctly. In addition, FMLA situations can become even more complicated when Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and workers compensation accommodations are involved.
