Presentation Description

In this Toolbox program, we will review key practical lessons from the last year in employment law.  It is one thing to keep up with the latest developments, but it is as important to understand what these developments mean for your everyday practices.  We will address major “takeways” from the past year to help you sharpen your day-to-day HR administration and stay out of legal trouble.

In addition, we will address the latest rulings under state and federal disability laws following the enactment of the ADAAA.  We will also review the most recent and instructive cases on reasonable accommodation--an issue that HR professionals must stay on top of to ensure their organizations are taking proper steps to address.

You will learn:

  • How managers can complicate what should be clear cut employee terminations
  • Best practices in electronic discovery
  • How to avoid actions that will create personal liability
  • The expansive scope of disability coverage under the ADAAA
  • Practical pointers for dealing with potential disability issues
  • What issues and evidence determine the outcome of accommodation cases
  • What your key personnel need to know to properly assist in disability-related issues
