Administration of Leave and Medical Documentation Requests (2017)

Administration of Leave and Medical Documentation Requests provides a multi-disciplinary and in-depth discussion of an agency’s responsibilities, and potential liabilities, when administering medical-related employee leave. Dewey author, Eleanor Laws, provides an updated overview of the various federal sector laws and regulations related to employee leave for disability, illness or injury, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA), and Office of Personnel Management (OPM) regulations regarding medical leave documentation. The book helps the reader to sort out the intricate maze of these various laws and regulations, pointing out where they intersect or overlap. In addition, readers are apprised of conflicts or tensions among applicable medical leave provisions, and provided with guidance on how to best resolve any conflicting provisions. Administration of Leave and Medical Documentation Requests provides a comprehensive discussion of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s caselaw and guidance on permissibility of medical requests under the ADA. It also explains how these interpretations relate to leave requests and medical documentation pertaining to fitness for duty.

The 2017 edition provides important updates, including interpretations under ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), as well as changes to FECA, FMLA and OPM regulations. Updates to the DFEC Procedure Manual help provide a useful roadmap for processing workers’ compensation claims.

This is a must-have guide for agency employees involved in any stage of administering employee leave, union representatives assisting employees with leave-related problems, and attorneys involved in disputes over medical-leave-related issues.

Also includes a detailed table of contents and a table of cases.

Also available as a .pdf file on a CD-ROM or as an ebook for instant download.
