Title:

Bipolar Disorder, Depression, And Other Conditions: What California HR Professionals Can and Can't Legally Do

SKU:WT-1001766
Format: Webinar
Description:

If a California employee identifies as having bipolar disorder, should you request a doctor’s note? What rights does he or she have under the ADA, FEHA, and other laws? What qualifies as reasonable accommodation? What about CFRA leave? Similarly, how should you respond when employees disclose other mental health conditions, such as depression?

Bipolar disorder affects 1 in 20 Americans, but because there’s a stigma attached to it, employees who have it seldom reveal it. It's considered a disability under the ADA and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), so you have to be prepared.

Bipolar disorder can appear as mood swings ranging from manic stages to depression and can affect an employee’s performance. Workers with bipolar disorder may seem to be the most talented and productive, then quickly become the least so. The same worker may exhibit sluggishness and have difficulty concentrating or remembering things. This inconsistency presents accommodation and management challenges for HR.

As with other disabilities, leaves of absence may be requested as an accommodation, so you must understand your legal responsibilities under both FMLA and the CFRA.

Join us when our presenter, a skilled California employment attorney, will provide an in-depth view of the ins and outs of how best to deal with employees with bipolar disorder, depression, and other mental conditions, as well as what the state and federal legal bounds are around handling leave requests and associated accommodations.
