EEOC has just published some very helpful to advice for those of us on either side of the bargaining or litigation tables who wrestle with the question of when employees must be given leave to accommodate a disability. Most of us should know by now disabled employees, whether permanently or temporarily, can be entitled to more leave than the FMLA gives them. The folks at FMLA Insights did a very good job of summarizing the key parts of the EEOC advice. We recommended you make this information widely known to colleagues. (See “EEOC Issues New Resource Document Addressing Leave as a Reasonable Accommodation under the ADA. What’s the Impact on Employers?”)
