This Article surveys the 1999 and 2000 decisions of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in which the court addressed issues in the areas of labor and employment law. Specifically, this Article examines decisions by the Eleventh Circuit under the (1) Family Medical Leave Act ("FMLA"); (2) Age Discrimination in Employment Act ("ADEA"); (3) Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 ("Title VII"); (4) Employee Retirement Income Security Act ("ERISA"); (5) Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA"); and (6) Americans With Disabilities Act ("ADA").' During the past two years, the Eleventh Circuit decided numerous cases involving issues of interest concerning labor and employment law. Because of the volume of cases, this Article does not attempt to address each significant case decided by the Eleventh Circuit on these issues. Still, several particularly noteworthy cases, including cases of first impression, were decided by the Eleventh Circuit in 1999 and 2000.
