CEAC ~ High Desert ~ Leaves of Absence/Accommodation Workshop
Susan Steward is a partner in the Cerritos office of Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo. She counsels and represents employers in all employment-related matters, including claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination. Ms. Steward also represents employers in class action lawsuits, particularly class actions involving claims for wage and hour violations. She defends employers in both state and federal courts, and before administrative judges and agencies. Ms. Steward also drafts employment handbooks and employment-related agreements and conducts internal investigations for large private and public sector employers.
This workshop will explore the tangled maze of leave laws, including FMLA, CFRA, PDL, Workers’ Compensation, and Disability. Understand how and when these laws intersect and overlap, when leaves must be provided, the amount of leave that must be provided, and when a leave of absence may be a reasonable accommodation.
