Critical Crossroads: How to Handle Alabama Workers' Comp Cases at the Intersection of the ADA and FMLA - On-Demand
Webinar now available on-demand.
Cases involving Alabama workers' comp often cross paths with elements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act. When that happens, and there is conflict between various laws' provisions, Which supercedes?
For example, the Alabama’s Workers’ Compensation Act does not require employers to create a job specifically designed for an injured employee and does not require an employer to provide the employee with special accommodations to allow the employee to perform a job. But light duty assignments are often utilized to get an employee back to work. Enter the ADA and FMLA. The employee may request a light duty position as a form of reasonable accommodation under the ADA. The issue of light duty may arise when an employee sustains a work-related injury that is also a serious health condition under the FMLA.
