GSC-SHRM: Annual Conference and Expo Virtual Experience
Melissa A. Salimbene and Lindsay A. Dischley will offer valuable insight on hot topics on the horizon for employers as they present, “Reasonable Accommodations Under the ADA And Recent Developments in Cannabis Law,” during the 2020 Garden State Council-SHRM Annual Conference & Expo on October 11 from 3:15 – 4:45 PM.
Their virtual session will provide an overview of employer’s obligations under the ADA and LAD regarding providing reasonable accommodations to potential and current employees, including when the obligation to engage in the interactive is triggered and when employers are obligated to accommodate a disability. Additionally, they will discuss how employers can best protect themselves from the FMLA trap and discipline or terminate employees with disabilities. In connection with this discussion, Melissa and Lindsay will provide an analysis of the current law on cannabis and how employers should address employee’s requests to use medical marijuana as an accommodation pursuant to the ADA and the LAD.
