Dealing with cases that involve the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the American’s with Disabilities Act Amendment Act (ADAAA) and Workers Compensation is often called the Bermuda Triangle of Employment Law. We call it a Triple Whammy, as these types of cases are very complicated to understand and deal with correctly. These three laws often conflict leaving Human Resources professionals scratching their heads and wondering how to deal with the maze of regulations. The Triple Whammy of Dealing with FMLA, ADAAA and Workers Compensation is an absolute must for all supervisors as well as human resources staff. Understanding the interplay of these laws to assure compliance with the rules and regulations is essential to protect the company from potentially very expensive lawsuits and settlements.
Violations of these laws can result in back pay, front pay, and liquidated damages often resulting in multi-million dollar judgments against the company. Since we live in a very litigious world and plaintiff attorneys are looking to pounce on the mistakes of employers, you must know the rights and responsibilities of both the employer and the employee to keep you and your company out of court. Ignorance is not a defense and supervisors and managers have been held personally liable for violations of FMLA. Conflicts between these laws add to the complexity of trying to comply.
