Some Sleepless Nights Can Be Avoided – Preventing Claims of Discrimination and Harassment Before They Start

While many pregnant mothers and new parents suffer from sleepless nights, employers can rest soundly if their supervisors and managers are well-trained to respond to accommodation and/or leave requests from new and expectant parents.  In this webinar, you will learn about the intersection among the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended (“ADA”), the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (“PDA”), Title VII, and the Family Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) and how best to train supervisors and managers to respond to employees who are new or expectant parents.
