Description:

One of the more complicated leave topics for employers, especially for multi-jurisdictional employers, is maternity leave.

Federal and state laws provide layers of protection to pregnant women and impose multi-dimensional requirements on their employers both for leave and accommodation. Just understanding the rubric of obligations and attempting to apply the rules correctly is a challenge. However, the risks associated with getting it wrong are increasing.

The EEOC has identified in its Strategic Enforcement Plan the issue of accommodating pregnancy-related limitations under the ADAAA and the Pregnancy Discrimination Act as a priority for monitoring and filed a string of pregnancy discrimination lawsuits in 2013 that demonstrate its commitment to its enforcement efforts.

With so many developments and increased enforcement activity in this area, employers should take a renewed look at the laws and regulations to be followed and ensure that they have implemented best practices that are pragmatic and consistent with the law.

This live webinar will provide guidance on this important issue by providing an overview of federal and state law, including the FMLA, the ADAAA, and Title VII and key changes and developments under each one, in addition to specifically addressing unique state requirements and special concerns related to pregnancy leave and return to work.

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.

The live 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.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
