(Originally presented March 26, 2014. A link of this archived session will be emailed to you to view at your convenience. Please use the registration link below.)
All employers face a wide variety of employment issues on a day-to-day basis. In fact, the majority of employers at some time or another have dealt with the “George Costanza employee” – the employee who appears to be manipulating employment laws to his or her advantage. This program takes the audience through a series of video clips from a Seinfeld episode where George uses a cane while interviewing for a job at a sporting goods company.
Each clip is highlighted with discussion points addressing the various employment implications during the hiring process and George’s subsequent employment. Attendees will learn how to sport issues, both common and uncommon, that arise in the course of daily employment and will be provided with practical advice in dealing with the George Costanza employee – specifically, what the employer can and cannot do under relevant employment laws and an assessment of the employer’s potential liability exposure under various hypotheticals. A variety of employment issues will be covered, including:
The Americans with Disabilities Act and ADA Amendments
The Family and Medical Leave Act
Employee leave issues
The hiring and firing process
Presenter: Cory Iannacone, Esq., Rhoads & Sinon LLP
