Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) April 21, 2015
i-Sight Software has announced a free webinar entitled Pregnancy Discrimination: Update and Action Steps for Employers. The webinar will be presented on May 20th at 2pm EDT by Cynthia Thomas Calvert, an employment lawyer, nationally recognized expert on discrimination and founder of Workforce 21C.
"Recent legal amendments have changed the way employers should manage pregnant employees," says Calvert. "It’s important for employers and human resources professionals to understand the implications of the changes to the pregnancy discrimination law and to understand the requirements of accommodation to avoid lawsuits and reputation damage."
This webinar is designed to brief employers on the latest laws and rulings, including the recent Supreme Court ruling, and discuss what employers can do to stay out of the courtroom.
"We are so pleased to have Cynthia back with us for another webinar," says Joe Gerard, Vice-President of Marketing and Sales at i-Sight. "She's considered to be among the top experts on discrimination law and was one of the two lawyers who pioneered the research behind the Family Responsibilities Discrimination Law, so we are confident in her depth of understanding and ability to convey the meaning of these amendments."
Topics to be discussed in the webinar include:
- common triggers of pregnancy discrimination complaints
- pregnancy accommodation requirements
- light duty
- policy reviews
- how to investigate and resolve pregnancy discrimination complaints
- management best practices
