Laner Muchin Partners Heather Becker and David Moore shared best practices for managing leaves of absence under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) at the inaugural HR Department of One Roundtable hosted by Chicago SHRM on May 5.

In addition to exploring the general rights and responsibilities of employers under FMLA and ADA, Heather and Dave discussed the many nuances of processing leave requests that are often overlooked and identified tools employers can utilize to curb abuse of leave.
