Employment Law & Sandwich Generation
As members of the "sandwich generation," many employees may find themselves in a world where they transition from being parents who care for their children to the children who care for their parents. Other employees may be responsible for ill spouses, in-laws or other relatives in need of care. Anyone working in the areas of child care, elder care, or employment law will benefit from attending the video replay of “Babies, Boomers and Beyond: Family Care and Employment Law” sponsored by the Labor & Employment Law Committee on Friday, March 14 from 9 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. This seminar for 3.0 hours of CLE credit will undertake the exploration of the intersection of family care obligations and the law of the workplace.
During the video, Robert W. Edmund of the Ohio Business Roundtable will discuss key federal case law and the recent Enforcement Guidance issued by the EEOC concerning the Title VII prohibition on discrimination in employment as it relates to workers with care giving responsibilities.
In addition, the rights and responsibilities conferred on workers with care giving responsibilities and the employers who employ them, as relates to the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, will be explored by William A. Nolan of Squire Sanders & Dempsey in his session on the ADA, the FMLA, and care giving.
Finally, Ohio Employment Law as it relates to workers with care giving responsibilities, including the OCRC’s recent work in the area of pregnancy discrimination, will complete the course with Matthew D. Miko, Chief Legal Counsel of the Ohio Civil Rights Commission speaking.
