Washington Disability Law Manual

This Manual will be available following the Washington Disability Law Workshop on September 20, 2016.

This Manual supports the agenda of the half-day Washington Disability Law Workshop on the morning of September 20, scheduled in Seattle following the full-day Americans with Disabilities Act Workshop on September 19.

Topics covered include 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.
