This is a paper that I presented at the 4th Definitive Ad Litem Seminar on April 11-12, 2014.  The event was hosted by the Juvenile Law Section of the Houston Bar Association.

How Employment Law Can Help You and Your Client in Adoption, Child Placement, and Other Family Court Matters

The paper discusses three topics:

1. The application of the FMLA in the adoption/child placement context.

2. The application of the "associational" disability theory under the Americans with Disabilities Act in the adoption/child placement context.

3. The general protections for witnesses who miss work to participate in court proceedings.
