Washington Disability Law Workshop

Seattle, WA   Motif Seattle   September 20, 2016


The brochure that is now available is from the 2015 program and is representative of the type of agenda that will be covered in 2016. The 2016 brochure will be available in June.

Please note this is a morning Workshop!....and not in the afternoon as in years past!

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 / CEU credit hours, depending upon the jurisdiction.

Registration Fee: $295.00
