Title:

Pregnancy-Related HR Issues: Bundles Of Joy, Bushels Of Paperwork & Legal Risks

SKU:WT-1001728
Format: Webinar
Description:

"I'm pregnant."

These are two of the most legally risky words any supervisor or HR professional can hear—and a new Supreme Court decision has made pregnancy accomodations even more complex.

  • 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. AutoZone found that out the hard way recently—a jury slapped the company with a record $185 million in damages after an employee was demoted after giving birth and then fired.

Plus, a new U.S. Supreme Court ruling creates a new legal framework for when you must offer light-duty work to pregnant staff. This webinar will get you up to speed on the latest laws, court rulings and best practices for accommodating expectant and new parents.

Join us for Pregnancy-Related HR Issues: Bundles of Joy, Bushels of Paperwork & Legal Risks. You'll discover how to properly handle challenges 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 recruiting and hiring.
  • What's a "reasonable” accommodation for pregnant employees and new mothers in light of the new Supreme Court decision?
  • 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 an expert in the field, attorney Lara de Leon of Ogletree Deakins.

Now is a CRITICAL time to avoid 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.
