Navigating the ADA, FMLA, and Worker's Compensation Maze

Torrington City Hall
140 Main Street
Torrington, CT 06790

9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m.


This program will address employee rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Worker's Compensation Act.  Navigating the triangle between these three laws can be treacherous, and a municipality's obligations can at times be difficult to discern.  Attendees will learn how intersecting ADA, FMLA and Worker's Compensation laws and regulations impact a municipality's policies and procedures, and what municipalities must do to adapt, comply and avoid legal exposure.


  • What the leave and disability laws require and the order they should be applied
  • Key differences between a "serious health condition," a "disability", and a "workplace injury"
  • What to do when you suspect issues related to an employee's performance may be due to mental illness
  • How to tell if a temporary transfer or change in duties/hours is the answer
  • The game plan for returning a workers' compensation claimant to work
  • What your leave policy should never state
  • How to have difficult conversations with protected employees about attendance, conduct, or performance-based issues


  • Mayors/First Selectmen
  • Town/City Managers
  • Finance Directors & Personnel
  • Public Safety Officials
  • Human Resource Directors & Personnel
  • School Business Managers
  • Board, Commission, and Committee Members
