What type of documentation can an employer request? Are there maximums for leave under the ADA? How do I determine whether or not the leave is related to the disability? Can leave under the ADA be combined with leave granted under FMLA? Do the rules under FMLA apply under ADA? Join our speaker as she untangles the confusion that often surrounds this topic.
