New ComPsych® Report Available: The Pandemic’s Effect on FMLA/ADA: A Perfect Storm of Changing Rules

Dec 3, 2020

“The speed at which leave law is changing and the complexities involved require dedicated resources to both interpret the law and provide actionable insight to employers, who already have their hands full with other organizational challenges related to COVID-19,” said Dr. Richard A. Chaifetz, Founder, Chairman and CEO of ComPsych. “Employers need a trusted absence management partner with the expertise to handle tough questions and give solid guidance.”


While employers grapple with an unprecedented amount of organizational uncertainty, closures, remote work and the prospects of returning to work, the FMLA and ADA have become more complex than ever to accommodate pandemic-related challenges. Employers are struggling with not only the return-to-work process but the leave law complexity as it applies to the return-to-work process. Compliance with these leave laws is paramount and will continue to change and evolve. The following is a recap of recent changes, perspective from FMLASource® on what is most concerning for employers, and what to expect in the coming months.
