Leslie Story, a Lead Attorney for Policy Service for the Texas Association of School Boards, will deliver a talk on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) at Ed311’s upcoming Personnel Law Conference for School Administrators on Wednesday, December 11, at the Renaissance Austin Hotel.
The ADA prohibits discrimination and retaliation against disabled employees. The FMLA requires employers to provide employees with job-protected and unpaid leave for qualified medical and family reasons. The FLSA sets minimum wage, overtime pay, record keeping, and youth employment standards that apply to both the public and private sectors.
These laws are detailed and complex and there have been some changes to the FLSA that administrators need to know. Leslie Story is set to break down the basics of each of these labor laws and discuss how they might overlap when an employee is requests leave. She will also discuss some of the pitfalls personnel administrators may face in applying the laws to a particular leave request and give practical strategies to tackle employee leave issues.
For Leslie Story’s insight into the interplay between these labor laws, join us at Ed311’s Personnel Law Conference for School Administrators scheduled on December 11, 2019 in Austin, Texas. For details and registration information, visit ED311’s event page.
