Preti Flaherty attorneys Matthew LaMourie and Elizabeth Olivier will present "Great Expectations: How to Handle an Accommodation Request" at the Maine HR Convention on May 8 at 2:45 p.m. From extended leave to drug-usage during work hours, ADA accommodation requests can cause quite a quandary for HR professionals. Through videos and interactive discussion, the workshop will help create a well-established process to bridge the gab between HR's legal compliance responsibility and how to best manage legal risk.
