Accommodations and the ADA

Nora Akins

"Eighty percent of life is showing up."

Woody Allen is credited for that expression, as well as a number of variations of the adage which are also attributed to him including, “80 percent of success is showing up.” The courts have stayed busy determining whether or not employees are qualified when they cannot show up. When employees either exhaust Family Medical Leave or the employer is not large enough to provide FMLA, disabilities may exist requiring the employer to consider accommodations including unpaid leave under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
