Webinar: Untangling the Top 10 Accommodation and Leave Knots

Navigating and administering leaves of absence in California has never been easy. Employers have to first understand which statutory leaves apply to their workplace, then ensure that they not only have policies in place regarding those leaves but also administer those leaves properly. Often, various leave statutes, reasonable accommodation statutes, and partial wage-replacement statutes overlap in a given situation, making compliance with the law even more difficult.

In a live webinar, Weintraub Tobin’s employment law attorneys, Lizbeth “Beth” West and Ryan Abernethy provided a summary of the complex statutory scheme of leave and accommodation laws under federal and state law and provide some helpful insights and best practices for compliance. They discussed who is eligible and under what circumstances and highlight the particular rights and obligations of both employers and employees.
