Medical- and Disability-Related Leave Advisor Tool Now Available

The tool will help workers and employers understand the leave they are entitled.

The U.S. Department of Labor has unveiled the Medical-and Disability-Related Leave Advisor, a new online tool to help employees and employers understand the leave to which employees may be entitled.

This tool marks the end of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, a campaign held each October. According to the news release, the tool asks user questions such as the type of business or organization, size of workforce, etc., and directs users to federal employment laws that apply as well as provides additional information.

"We know that employers want to support their employees, especially when unexpected illness or injury occurs,” said Jennifer Sheehy, deputy assistant secretary of labor for Disability Employment Policy. "The new Medical-and Disability-Related Leave Advisor helps employers understand the intersection between different laws – including the FMLA and ADA – that may impact a worker's right to leave."
