We will review the latest guidance and regulations from the agencies affecting disability and leave management, including the EEOC’s new guidance on leaves, the final regulations on wellness plans, OSHA’s new recordkeeping regulations and the EEOC’s resource documents for pregnant workers and their doctors issued in connection with the June 2016 "United States of Women" summit. We will also review what the courts have said over the past year and discuss how all of these changes impact your disability and leave management strategy.
