Creative Accommodations: The Art of the ADA

Given the expanded protection of "disabilities" under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the EEOC's aggressive strategies, and the ever-increasing requests by employees to grant accommodations, the need to be knowledgeable, creative, and flexible in the accommodation process is more critical than ever. This session provides an update on recent ADA accommodation developments, plus a little FMLA for fun, and discusses "the art" of accommodation and compliance from the real-world perspective of an employment law counselor and litigator.

Your Handbook is Probably Illegal and Other Impacts of a New Labor Board and a Revitalized Labor Movement

The Labor Board has utilized its decision and rule-making authority to expand its reach and the definition of "protected concerted activity" to many different areas including handbooks, employer investigations, policies and procedures. In addition, previously blocked Board rules and decisions designed to "update" the NLRB election process and assist unions in organizing new members will be implemented very soon. Ultimately, you must consider and adopt an entirely new labor relations strategy to guide your organizations and prepare for this completely new challenge.
