Leaves and Accommodation Issues for Dealerships – Still Challenging After All These Years
After being on the books for more than 25 years, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act continue to present challenges for even the most experienced human resources professionals. Workers compensation laws add yet another layer of concern when a work-related injury or illness is involved. Compliance with the obligations under these laws often is confusing and frustrating, even for those with the best intentions. And, getting it wrong can create significant legal liability for employers. Just last month the EEOC announced that it had filed a number of discrimination lawsuits against employers and those lawsuits fell into two general categories, neither of which is a surprise: sexual harassment and disability discrimination.
Join Fisher Phillips attorneys Tillman Coffey, Myra Creighton and Steven Ferenczy for a webinar that will discuss the nuts and bolts of these laws and what each requires in the context of a fictional technician named James who suffers an on the job injury. The various scenarios involving James likely will be situations similar to those you have encountered or may encounter. The goal of the webinar is to provide a better understanding of the basic requirements under theses law, and the best practices for handling employee leaves or other medical-related accommodation issues.
