Workplace conflict happens in the best of organizations. Failing to address workplace conflict costs an organization money, time and productivity. When conflicts go unaddressed, they can have a negative impact on productivity and teamwork.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law by George H.W. Bush in July 1990. The Act is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. 

The purpose of the law is to ensure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion.

Disability accommodation is an important and visible aspect of ethical business practices. Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act will ensure your organization is operating in an ethical manner.

Complying with the Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is difficult in the best of circumstances, but it gets even more complicated for K-12 schools. The FMLA has special rules that apply only to educators in grades K-12, including requirements to combine paid and unpaid time when calculating the “minimum-hours-worked” eligibility requirements for “exempt teachers.” There are also special rules concerning elementary and secondary schools, both public and private.

How to deal with a teacher who takes FMLA leave 3 weeks prior to summer vacation? Are schools allowed to count the summer as part of the FMLA or not? Which instructional employees are eligible for these special rules? Not having answers to question such as these (and these are just a few) can be cause for a legal nightmare for K-12 schools. Thus, schools need to ensure they are fully-versed in these special provisions and maintain legal compliance.

Join us in this webinar to familiarize yourself with pregnancy and nursing-related rights and responsibilities of employers and employees. While pregnancy and nursing are not considered disabilities, many pregnancy-related conditions are considered disabilities. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act requires employers to make modifications or accommodations to a pregnant and/or nursing worker’s job in a manner similar to those provided to a disabled employee. This could include adjusting job-related duties, providing additional breaks, or implementing lifting limitations and other safety procedures. Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act section of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), covered employers are required to accommodate employees who are nursing.
