  • Who is disabled under the ADAAA? Who isn't?
  • What obligations do I have to an employee who is out of FMLA leave but still needs additional time? What if the employee is receiving workers' comp benefits while out – does that change anything?
  • Can an employer still have "wellness" programs? If so, how are such programs impacted by the ADAAA and GINA?
  • What can supervisors discuss with employees with running afoul of GINA?
  • We will have an update on these various laws followed by a panel discussion to answer your questions and discuss with audience participation various scenarios that arise with respect to these issues.
