Also, Mr. Barbour addressed how employers may owe “Reasonable Accommodation” in the form of flexible leave guidelines and policies and tips for crafting leave policies that protect employer’s interests and enforce effective leave policies while simultaneously respecting employee rights under the ADAAA.
