As workplaces begin to return to in-person, employers, workers, unions, and their counsel need to understand recent changes to the New York City Human Rights law and how it differs from the ADA. The law requires employers who know or should have known about an employee's disability–broadly defined–to offer reasonable accommodations or face potential litigation for disability discrimination. Employers need to understand how the lingering effects of the pandemic might affect staff members and create a need for changes in policies and practices. Join us for this live webinar as we discuss how both workers and employers can benefit by using the tool of reasonable accommodation to keep staff working effectively and avoid litigation or grievances.
