Abstract:
These three statutes have distinct purposes; however, despite this, all three laws can apply to the same case simultaneously. Workers' Compensation was created to provide prompt, sure, and reasonable income and benefits on a no-fault-basis to people injured on the job. The Americans with Disabilities Act was designed to prevent employment discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities. The Family and Medical Leave Act was passed to protect the employment of workers who must take time off to care for their own medical needs or the needs of family members. This bulletin includes a chart that provides a comparative analysis of some of the keys provisions of these three acts.

Abstract:
Supervisors are becoming increasingly concerned about their potential personal financial responsibility for the wrongdoings of subordinates. The type of lawsuit most cited as the source of concern for most supervisors of public employees is the one based on the Civil Rights Act of 1871. While this concern is not without foundation, much of it is based on misinformation. The following bulletin aims to give public managers a basic understanding of how this law may be used to hold them personally liable for the acts of someone they are responsible for supervising.
