ADAAA Interactive Management While most disability management programs cover transitional return to work, light duty, and stay-at-work (SAW) programs for family medical leave, employers have traditionally paid less attention to the broader ADA Amendments Act of 2008 requirements. This oversight leaves them open to significant Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) violations, in which an individual incident could result in six-figure penalties. Through Genex’s ADAAA Interactive Management program, employers can ensure they’re compliant by adopting consistent management practices to address these requests and allow employees with disabilities to work efficiently. Through its centralized Genex SAW/ADAAA unit, Genex incorporates best practice services to assist employers in developing a documented, interactive ADAAA-compliant process.
Genex provides clinical resources to better manage FMLA requests without your administration program. We provide clinical reviews, second and third opinions, and fitness for duty (FFD) evaluations. Without the requisite medical expertise, or if the medical data is incredulous or conflicts with known facts, it may be difficult for employers to accurately determine if an employee is covered under the FMLA. A Genex certified FMLA case manager will:
- Provide timely and professional clinical reviews of the employee’s medical information
- Provide an opinion as to the validity of the medical condition relative to the requirements under FMLA
- Request a second opinion if the medical record is incomplete or does not justify validating continued leave
- Identify and schedule a third medical opinion if doubt still exists following a second opinion
