Professionals in Human Resources Association's Mid-Year Legal Seminar

Morgan Lewis associate Kate McGuigan will present "EEOC's Final ADAAA Regulations: What You Need To Know and How California Employers Are Affected" at the Professionals in Human Resources Association's Mid-Year Legal Seminar.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recently issued its final rule interpreting the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA). The ADAAA expands the definition of what constitutes a disability, changes "regard as" disabled, and expands the list of "major life activities."  Learn how a "substantial limitation" is defined, what impact the final rule will have on hiring, reasonable accommodation decisions, medical leaves of absence, terminations, and more.  We'll discuss how the new ADAAA regulations affect California employers and the administration of FMLA and CFRA-based policies.  Find out what practical steps you can take to protect your company.
