Please note this is a morning Workshop - 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.In 2016, we are again offering a half-day "add-on" session to our ADA Workshop. This morning workshop will cover the Washington Law Against Discrimination (WLAD), including how courts and the Washington Human Rights Commission have interpreted the state’s amended provisions and recent court cases concerning the state law definitions of other concepts such as “qualified” and “reasonable accommodation,” the interplay between the ADA and WLAD, and practical considerations for human resources personnel and counsel when facing possible ADA and WLAD issues. Also covered: Washington leave laws and agency guidance on providing employees with family medical leave, leave for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and leave for military spouses, and discussion of the interplay between the Federal FMLA, the Washington State Family Leave Act and pregnancy-related disability leave, and an overview of the Seattle Sick and Safe Leave Ordinance.
Further information is available by contacting NELI. This half-day Workshop will provide between 2.75-3.3 CLE / PDC / CEU credit hours, depending upon the jurisdiction.
