Diving in the Deep End: Exploring Four Challenges of Disability Discrimination PARMA/CalPRIMA Mini-Conference

October 2012

2030 West El Camino Avenue
Sacramento, California   95833

Disability discrimination continues to be an area of the law that vexes employers and presents unique and, at times, unexpected, challenges. In this session, we will explore four of those challenges and examine how an employer can best address them. We will first discuss the application of the disability laws to medical marijuana, as well as to drug and alcohol use and addiction. Next, we will examine whether attendance is an essential function. Third, we will address the issue of dealing with an uncooperative employee during the interactive process. Finally, we will turn to how an agency can best defend its decisions in litigation and the role that effective documentation plays in the defense.
