as shared by.

The ADA National Network wants to remind you about the upcoming ADA Legal Webinar Session titled " Return to Work and the ADA" featuring Barry Taylor and Rachel Weisberg,  with Equip for Equality.    

This session will address the many legal issues that arise when people with disabilities seek to return to work after being on leave.  It will address how the courts have interpreted a number of these issues including: 1) the interplay between the ADA and the Family & Medical Leave Act; 2) reasonable accommodations when returning from leave; and 3) medical exams and inquiries, including fitness for duty examinations. Be sure to join us for this session so you can understand how these complicated legal issues are playing out in the workplace and the courts.
