Webinar: ID# 1001728
About This Course:
"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.
