EEOC Continues to Target Inflexible Leaves-of-Absence, Attendance Policies


Over the last few years, the EEOC has challenged employer leaves of absence and attendance policies.  

The EEOC is critical of employer policies providing for inflexible, fixed leave periods as well as policies requiring an employee to be able to return to work at full capacity after a leave of absence. 

The EEOC's view that such policies violate the Americans With Disabilities Act has resulted in significant settlements, with large financial liabilities for employers.

My recent article on the EEOC's focus on employer leaves of absence and attendance policies,
first published in the Legal  Intelligencer,  
http://www.duanemorris.com/articles/eeoc_continues_target_inflexible_leaves_of_absence_attendance_policies_4220.html 
reviews recent EEOC settlements as well as outlines specific revisions for revamping your organization's leaves of absence and attendance policies and protocols.
