Navigating Labor and Employment Law
Employer and Enforcement Agency Perspectives on the Americans with Disabilities Act and Pregnancy Discrimination
A navigation system will get you to your destination provided you know the address or the correct coordinates. However, often you have to choose the best route to take. The VABLN will present a legal update on the Americans with Disabilities Act and Pregnancy Discrimination from the perspective of employers and enforcement agencies to help businesses avoid potential traffic jams and major road work. This will include a discussion of the EEOC’s guidelines on leave as a reasonable accommodation as well as pregnancy discrimination and accommodations in the workplace.
