What You’ll Learn
The Trump Effect on Disability and Leave Management Law: Are We Out of the Doghouse?
It’s nearly nine months into the new administration. What impact has this had on disability and leave management law? What can we expect over the next three years?  We will review the current state of disability and leave management issues, including paid sick leave, transgender issues, parental leave, and other emerging trends. 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.

Stress Relief for Employees: Marijuana? Comfort animals? Must Employers Accommodate to Make Employees Comfortable?
What are the limits on accommodation? When does accommodation move from necessary to preferred? Can you still say “no pets in the workplace”? Can you still say “no pot in the workplace”? The law is changing. Employers may have to go to greater lengths to make their employees feel good at work. Learn what you must allow and what protections you still have.

Stress Relief for Employers: Running with the Big Dogs
Handling FMLA and ADA issues can be complicated, with no easy answer. Sometimes, no matter what you do, you are stepping into a legal quagmire. In this session, we will help you make informed decisions, balancing the legal risks with the practical realities, so that you can work through even the most complicated issues.
