Course/Product Description
Title:

Pregnancy Accommodation: How To Manage Requests For Light Duty, Leave, Transfer, And More

SKU:WC-1026451
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

The EEOC just settled a case against a convenience store chain operator with stores in Texas and New Mexico for a whopping $950,000. The EEOC claimed the company had discriminated against pregnant workers by subjecting them to different working conditions, and also told the workers they would not have been hired had the company known about their pregnancies.

Even if you have no intention of discriminating, employee pregnancies can be tricky from a legal standpoint. Pregnancy is a protected condition, but you can’t assume that pregnant workers want or need special treatment. Similarly, while pregnancy itself is not considered a disability, it can give rise to legally protected disabilities. Even experienced HR professionals have trouble striking an appropriate balance between sensitivity and legal compliance.

Don’t miss our informative webinar when a skilled employment attorney will shed light on how to correctly handle issues concerning pregnant workers so you’re on the right side of the law.

You’ll learn:

  • The federal laws that cover pregnancy discrimination, and how they apply to your organization
  • What pregnancy discrimination is—and, importantly, what it isn’t—under federal law
  • The types of additional state-based protections for pregnant employees you need to watch out for
  • What you can and can’t say (and do) when a job applicant reveals that she’s pregnant
  • What you need to know when a pregnant employee is being considered for a promotion
  • How and when you may have to accommodate a pregnant employee with physical limitations
  • When you can ask for medical certification regarding a pregnancy-related disability
  • The best way to avoid pregnancy bias claims against your organization
  • What your employees are entitled to when it comes to maternity leave
Register now to learn what constitutes pregnancy discrimination, the types of accommodations that may be legally requested, what you can and can’t ask of a pregnant employee, and more!

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.
