    Kronick is pleased to again sponsor CALPELRA’s Annual Conference on December 3-7, 2018 in Monterey. Shareholder David Tyra and Associate Jennifer Weiner will discuss how to manage leaves in light of the numerous overlapping laws, how to determine appropriate and effective reasonable accommodations (including leaves) for employees who require them to perform the essential functions of their jobs, and how to conduct effective interactive process meetings with employees and their representatives … all these situations present significant challenges for employers. If you have basic knowledge of the various laws providing employees with leave rights – FMLA, CFRA, ADA, workers’ comp, etc. – then in this session you’ll learn about some of the more difficult, complex, and advanced issues arising from employee leaves and reasonable accommodation requests, with a particular emphasis on the overlapping nature of the various applicable laws, and techniques for handling those issues.
