LCC provides assistance to employees who have a serious health condition or disability as well as employees who have a family member with a serious health condition.
FMLA Leave of Absence
The FMLA or the Family Medical Leave Act is a federal law passed in 1993 entitling eligible employees to increased job security when dealing with their own serious health condition or a serious health condition of their child, spouse, or parent. The FMLA requires employers to provide eligible employees time-off from work for FMLA qualifying reasons and prohibits employers from interfering with employee rights.
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) also provides that eligible employees may take FMLA leave: 1) for a qualifying exigency while the employee's spouse, child, or parent (the military member) is on covered active duty or has been notified of an impending call or order to covered active duty and 2) to care for a covered service member with a serious illness or injury.

ADA Reasonable Accommodations
Under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a job, the work environment, or the way things are usually done during the hiring process. These modifications enable an individual with a disability to have an equal opportunity not only to get a job, but successfully perform their job tasks to the same extent as people without disabilities. The ADA requires reasonable accommodations as they relate to three aspects of employment: 1) ensuring equal opportunity in the application process; 2) enabling a qualified individual with a disability to perform the essential functions of a job; and 3) making it possible for an employee with a disability to enjoy equal benefits and privileges of employment.
