Pregnancy-Related HR Issues: Bundles Of Joy, Bushels Of Paperwork & Legal Risks
|Date / Time:
These are two of the most legally risky words any supervisor or HR professional can hear.
- How must you accommodate the employee's new physical limitations?
- How should you handle leave requests?
- What about discipline and discharge issues?
- When can you require the employee to return?
Pregnancies set into motion a complicated mix of responsibilities and risks for your organization. You can't afford to make even one mistake.
This new webinar will get you up to speed on the latest laws and best practices for accommodating expectant and new parents.
Never again wonder "Am I doing it right?" Join us Feb. 19 and learn to properly handle issues such as:
- How to navigate the array of laws and legal requirements — including the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)—as well as recent federal agency activity regarding their enforcement.
- The type of pregnancy-related ailments (morning sickness, etc.) that are considered FMLA "serious conditions" or ADA "disabilities."
- How to avoid pregnancy-bias claims during the recruiting and hiring phase.
- What's a "reasonable" accommodation for pregnant employees and new mothers.
- Real-world scenarios on sick leave, light-duty assignments and lactating employees that you can apply to your own workplace right away.
- The 6 best practices on pregnancy-related issues that will keep you out of court.
Plus, get all your questions answered by two experts in the field, attorneys Maria Greco Danaher and Brian McDermott of Ogletree Deakins.
Now is NOT the time to make mistakes with pregnant employees! The EEOC announced in its new Strategic Enforcement Plan that they're ramping up their focus on pregnancy discrimination. The EEOC recently filed a string of pregnancy discrimination lawsuits against employers … and there's no sign the agency is slowing down.
Join us Feb. 19 to train yourself and your supervisors how to do the right thing and stay out of court!

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
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!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.

presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
