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.
