Seminar Description

HOW FAR MUST EMPLOYERS GO TO ACCOMMODATE EMPLOYEE DISABILITIES?

In today's stressful economic environment, California employers find themselves faced with more employee illnesses, injuries and workplace stress claims. Increasingly burdensome employment laws can hamper an employer's ability to maintain a productive workforce with absentee employees.

In this informative program, employment attorney Karen Gabler of LightGabler will discuss the employer's obligations in handling employee disabilities.

Topics covered will include:

  • Navigating the maze of state and federal disability laws
  • Recognizing covered disabilities
  • Documentation of medical issues
  • Conducting the interactive discussion
  • Reasonable accommodation of disabled employees
  • Counseling, discipline and termination of disabled employees
  • The interplay between statutory leave laws and reasonable accommodation
  • New cases on accommodating disability leaves
  • New laws on payment of insurance premiums during leaves
