HOW FAR MUST EMPLOYERS GO TO ACCOMMODATE EMPLOYEE DISABILITIES?

In today's stressful environment, California employers find themselves faced with more employee illnesses, injuries and workplace stress claims. While many 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 covered will include the following:

  • Navigating the maze of state and federal disability laws
  • Recognizing covered disabilities
  • Documentation of medical issues
  • Conducting the interactive discussion and the "interactive log"
  • 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
