2020 Employment Breakfast Series: Strengthening Your Company's Management of Accommodation Requests
One City Center
Portland, ME 04101
For more than 25 years, Preti Flaherty's Employment Law Group has been keeping clients, business partners, and friends up to date on recent developments in employment law. Join us as we continue that tradition with the 2020 Employment Law Breakfast Series - a three-part workshop series focusing on gender equality, managing accommodation requests, and updates on new HR legislation in Maine.
An employee’s request for an accommodation under state and federal disability discrimination laws triggers an “interactive process” to determine what accommodation might be reasonable. Navigating this process is one of the most challenging tasks facing an HR manager. In this session, Matthew LaMourie will focus how to effectively manage some of the more complex scenarios you can face, including what technically triggers the duty to interact, how to defend your decision-making, and particular requests involving things such as unpaid leave, a supervisor reassignment and telecommuting.
