In this episode, we highlight the challenges of accommodating an employee's disability through leaves of absence. The podcast covers the background of the Americans with Disabilities Act, how leave can be a reasonable accommodation, what an employer should request, difficult leave requests (indefinite leave, excessive leave, and intermittent leave), and normal elements of accommodation law, and concludes with a recent case from the Seventh Circuit that may be a roadmap for other courts.
