When is an Employer Free to Deny an Employee's Request For a Leave as an ADA Accommodation?

Providing disability-related leave for an employee is something that employers need to be very careful about. If the leave does not cause undue hardship for the employer, then the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) states that you generally have to grant the leave; however, not for an unlimited period of time. If you do not grant the leave even though it would not cause undue hardship, you could be sued.

What Employers Should Know About Workers' Compensation

Employers know that they must purchase insurance that will provide benefits to anyone under their employment that suffers a work related injury. This law provides protection for both parties; employers don't have to worry about being sued by an employee, and employees get the benefits that they need no matter who was at fault. This is just the first step, however, in protecting yourself and your company from workplace injury and unwanted lawsuits.
