In the first of our two-part series on employment leave, a panel to include Lynn McIntosh, Counsel at the U.S. Department of Labor's Labor Standards Division, and E. Pierce Blue and Paul Kehoe, Special Assistants to Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Commissioners Chai Feldblum and Victoria Lipnic, will discuss the intersection of eligibility and benefits under the Family and Medical Leave Act, leave as a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act, Workers' Compensation Act leave, and employer provided benefits. The panelists will provide a basic framework for audience members new to this area of employment law, as well as perspectives from their agencies on enforcement efforts and administrative exhaustion issues.
The second panel in our series will provide a case law update and practitioner current issues discussion, including family responsibilities discrimination issues, the proposed Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, and implications for workers who go out on short- or long-term disability leave. Stay tuned for more information, including scheduling, on our second employment leave panel.
