Disability Discrimination and the California Fair Employment & Housing Act (“FEHA”)
Employer provided disability accommodation requires more than ergonomic offerings. This program will highlight disability accommodation in the workplace as an ever increasing part of the employment litigation landscape. The program will focus on the requirements of the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) when it comes to conducting the “good faith interactive process” and determining whether or not a “reasonable accommodation” can or should be provided, new state rules, and decisions defining covered “disabilities” and employer obligations. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the FEHA and its overarching purpose, learn “best practices” when it comes to conducting the interactive process and determining reasonable accommodations, and leave with a better understanding of the court’s perception of employer obligations when it comes to providing a discrimination free workplace.
