How far must an employer go to accommodate an employee with a disability?

In today's stressful work environment, California employers find themselves faced with more employee illnesses, injuries and workplace stress claims. While most employers want to be sensitive to any employee in crisis, increasingly burdensome employment laws can hamper an employer's ability to maintain a productive workplace with absentee employees.

In this informative seminar, employment law attorney Karen L. Gabler will discuss the employer's obligations in handling employee disabilities. Topics will include the following:

  • Recognizing covered disabilities
  • Documentation of medical issues
  • Conducting the interactive discussion
  • The "interactive log"
  • Reasonable accommodation of disabled employees
  • What does "undue hardship" really mean?
  • Personal illness/injury vs. workplace illness/injury
  • Correspondence vs. forms
  • Counseling and discipline of disabled employees
  • Handling attendance issues in light of mandatory sick leave
  • Can you discipline an employee for excessive use of sick leave?
  • Can you ever terminate a disabled employee?
  • Can you ever replace a disabled employee?

*Attendance is limited to no more than three people per company.
