Venue: Presidents Room / Minnesota State Bar Association  Minneapolis, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $35.00

Deadline to Register: October 20, 2015

Earlier this year, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its heavily-anticipated decision in Young v. UPS, which provided the framework for pregnant employees to challenge employers’ workplace accommodation policies and practices and the resulting disparate impact.  The Court further explained the necessary evidence employers must present to defeat such challenges.  In this presentation, you will learn about the facts and arguments leading up to the Court’s 6-3 decision and what the accommodation process looks like today after that decision.  This seminar also will address evidentiary issues under the PDA, who is considered to be a similarly-situated employee, direct and indirect evidence of disparate impact, and what constitutes legitimate, non-discriminatory policies and practices.  Finally, this presentation will examine the interplay of Young, the EEOC’s Guidelines, and Minnesota law.

Lunch and registration will begin at 11:30. The program will begin at noon.
