Honesty is the best policy for worker and company in FMLA case

The Family and Medical Leave Act sometimes seems too good to be true. Under both the federal and Wisconsin laws, an eligible employee is allowed to take up to 12 weeks of leave without pay for major life events. The birth or adoption of a child, a personal health emergency and the serious illness of a member of the employee's immediate family are just a few examples.

7th Circuit ADA decision won't close interpretation gap with EEOC p3

A three-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals handed down a decision recently that critics say upholds a precedent of the court while it runs counter to a U.S. Supreme Court decision.

This is just one of many cases that discuss how far an employer must go to provide a reasonable accommodation under the ADA.

7th Circuit ADA decision won't close interpretation gap with EEOC p2

We are continuing our discussion of a recent decision handed down from a three-judge panel of the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The decision has reignited a debate between the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the 7th Circuit, which includes Wisconsin -- a debate that involves other circuits and the U.S. Supreme Court.

7th Circuit ADA decision won't close interpretation gap with EEOC

A 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel handed down a decision recently that may continue the court's tougher stance on the Americans with Disabilities Act -- if the full court agrees with the decision. The panel stood by the court's precedent, ruling that the ADA does not require an employer to reassign a worker to a vacant position if a disability renders him incapable of continuing in his current position. The 7th Circuit includes Wisconsin, so this decision is binding here.
