    After being on the books for more than 25 years, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act continue to present challenges for even the most experienced human resources professionals. Workers compensation laws add yet another layer of concern when a work-related injury or illness is involved. Compliance with the obligations under these laws often is confusing and frustrating, even for those with the best intentions. And, getting it wrong can create significant legal liability for employers. Just last month the EEOC announced that it had filed a number of discrimination lawsuits against employers and those lawsuits fell into two general categories, neither of which is a surprise:  sexual harassment and disability discrimination.
