Overview (Program Summary)
In this session, Littler Shareholders Ethan Thomas (Las Vegas) and Michelle Gomez (Denver) will guide you through addressing return to work and work-from-home battles, performance issues commingled with protected leaves or accommodations, leave obligations beyond FMLA, organizational changes and the impact of the FMLA/ADA on those changes. They will also touch on the additional hot topic of lawsuits over access to companies’ websites and physical locations. Finally, they will address how the isolation, stress and suffering of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected employees’ mental health. Employers need to recognize these behaviors and know the immediate and long-term options available to address them in order to protect workplaces from conduct that could lead to dangerous workplace conditions.
