When Workers’ Comp, ADA and FMLA Intersect, Employers Should Brace for Three Times the Headache

Taken separately, workers’ compensation laws, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) represent complicated laws that are often difficult for employers and employees alike to figure out. When workers must be absent from the workplace under two or three of these laws, the situation becomes even more complex, and companies’ risk of potential litigation and regulatory investigations increase.

Is Your Firm Playing Above the Line?

There is a lot of interest, discussion and action taking place around client accounting and advisory services these days. Firms are recognizing the opportunities offered by advances in technology and cloud accounting systems. However, it’s not the technology platform driving this movement, rather firms’ desire to transition from a trusted technical advisor to a trusted business advisor. Before you even get into the discussion about which cloud accounting platform is right for your firm and clients, you must first ask if your firm is prepared to play above the line.
