Leave of Absence and Disability Advice/Defense

The team of experienced attorneys at Nilan Johnson Lewis regularly helps employers navigate the complexities of the ADA, FMLA, USERRA, and other laws mandating leaves of absence and reasonable accommodations. We conduct audits, draft and revise policies, provide training, and offer clear and practical guidance to resolve the most perilous leave management and accommodation questions.

In addition, we have successfully defended FMLA, disability discrimination, failure to accommodate, and USERRA charges and claims, securing dismissals by administrative agencies, winning summary judgment in courts, or prevailing at arbitration or trial.
