Family and Caregiver Responsibility Discrimination: Compliance Tips for Staying Off the EEOC’s Radar
|Date / Time:
According to the Center for WorkLife Law, family responsibility discrimination is an emerging area of law. The number of employees claiming they were treated unequally because of their caregiver status rose by nearly 400 percent in recent years.
When you consider that nearly 60 million Americans qualify as caregivers in some capacity, especially those "Sandwich Generation" who find themselves taking care of both their aging parents and their children, that's a staggering number of people whose needs as caregivers need to be taken into consideration in the workplace.
While "caregiver" isn't itself a protected class, taking adverse employment actions against these employees due to their requests for time off or other accommodations could spark a number of costly claims under both state and federal law.
It's necessary for you to get up to date on the best practices for accommodating employees with family and caregiving responsibilities so you can meet the needs of your workforce while maintaining a productive work environment.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- How you could be accused of unlawful discrimination against employees based on their status as caregivers - and how to prevent that from happening
- Best practices for hiring and managing employees with caregiver responsibilities
- How to draft and implement policies relating to flexible work schedules, leaves of absence, remote work, and other accommodations
- How to effectively train your supervisors and line managers on what not to do so they don't inadvertently spark FRD claims against your organization
- How to investigate complaints of caregiver bias in the workplace and the type of corrective action that may be warranted
- When an employee may be entitled leave to care for an ailing parent or child
- And more!
In just 90 minutes, you'll learn valuable compliance tips for staying off the EEOC's radar when managing employees with caregiver responsibilities. Register now for this event risk-free.

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
