If you've watched any of the other fashion law CLEs, you now know that the business of fashion is difficult. However, how do these companies handle employees with disabilities and what, if any, accommodations are reasonable and/or required?
In this course, viewers will become familiar with the disability alphabet soup:
Specifically, attorneys will learn how all of these relate to each other (if at all), as well as which laws employers turn to when an employee requests an accommodation. As it relates to the retail environment, practitioners will learn what is considered reasonable and what changes, if any, must be made to the selling floor in order to help retail professionals perform their duties.
Join Rania V. Sedhom, Founding Member, Sedhom & Mayhew, PLLC, a Bespoke Law FirmTM and Marjorie M. Glover, chair of Chadbourne & Parke LLP's executive compensation and employee benefits practice group and a member of the Firm’s employment law department, as they discuss the practical effects and solutions of disability accommodation in fashion and, in particular, the retail environment.
