Thursday, November 21, 2013
01:00 AM Eastern Standard Time

Managing pregnancy disability accommodations and leaves of absence requires employers to navigate a challenging maze of regulations and compliance requirements. Join us for a breakfast briefing to review the legal landscape for California employers and discuss best practices for managing pregnancy disability leaves in compliance with state and federal laws.

Topics will include:

  • Definitions of “pregnancy-related conditions,” “disability,” and “reasonable accommodation” under California law
  • The interactive process and the obligations of both an employer and an employee
  • Calculation of pregnancy disability leave periods
  • Issues related to notice and medical certification
  • Benefits continuation
  • Reinstatement
  • The interplay of CFRA, FMLA, and pregnancy disability leaves
