Equal Employment Opportunity claims can be a long and often complicated process, and some challenges are a bit more troublesome than others. It’s those topics we are tackling during this four-part webinar series. Why should know the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Babb v. Wilkie? What are steps you can take to avoid an age discrimination claim? What’s the difference between serious health condition and an ADA disability? And what happens if you confuse the two? How do you determine whether a job task is an essential function? How do you define a “prompt and effective” response to a complaint?
We’ll answer these questions and more over the course of four 60-minute webinars, held the first Thursday of the month. Sessions will be held on Thursdays from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET.
