Leave & Accommodations

NCBA Legal Learning Webinar Series on Labor & Employment

Wednesday, June 28, 2023
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM (EDT)
Category: Webinars

This presentation identifies the legal duties and obligations for leave and accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Workers’ Compensation (WC), and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII). Through this presentation, NCBA members will learn how to navigate the leave and accommodation process, including the interactive process, determining whether there is an undue burden, types of accommodations, notice requirements, length of leave, employee rights during and after leave, and other related information.

Please join Lindsey White and Maya Foster of Shawe Rosenthal as they discuss the responsibilities of employers and employees with respect to leave and accommodations for religious and medical reasons in this complimentary webinar. As a former EEOC trial attorney, Lindsey brings a unique perspective to the topic.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. To provide background knowledge about relevant leave laws including, but not limited to, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Workers’ Compensation (WC), and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII).
  2. To discuss employer obligations under leave laws, including the duty to accommodate.
  3.  To outline employee rights while on leave and when they return to ensure compliance.

CLE is pending for this webinar.

CLE Information

National Creditors Bar Association is a national provider of legal educational content. NCBA’s goal is to provide its members with as many opportunities as possible to earn Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits. Some NCBA webinars state that they are pending approval. If a webinar is pending approval, it means that NCBA’s education staff is awaiting confirmation of approval for CLE credit from the accrediting body of a particular state; it should be noted that individual states have different response and approval rates. NCBA expects that the course will be approved for the credit amount and type listed, but approval is not guaranteed. An attorney can still take the course at their own discretion, though.

It is not uncommon for a course which is pending approval to not be approved until after the webinar has taken place. Once an official decision notice arrives from the state, NCBA will notify attorneys who have completed the course as soon as possible via email, and will re-issue any certificates of completion to reflect the updated state reporting numbers. However, it is recommended that attorneys do not view webinars that are pending approval close to their CLE deadline, as NCBA cannot guarantee that a course will be approved in time.

National Creditors Bar Association will seek MCLE accreditation, with the assistance of the ABA MCLE, for this webinar. NCBA will seek General CLE credit hours in 60-minute-hour states, and in 50-minute states, subject to each state’s approval and credit rounding rules. States typically decide whether a program qualifies for MCLE credit in their jurisdiction 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program. A link for CLE requests will be provided to webinar attendees who have met the attendance and engagement requirements.
