Be Reasonable!

We will discuss in detail how to determine whether a workplace disability accommodation is “reasonable,” when an employer can decline an employee’s request for a specific accommodation, what accommodations are never required, and when an accommodation would cause “undue hardship” to the employer.

Investigating Sexual Harassment Complaints

In the wake of the #metoo movement and the legislative actions that followed, properly investigating sexual harassment complaints has never been more critical.  In this engaging workshop, we will have a practical discussion about the nuts and bolts of an investigation, from complaint to resolution.
