We help clients implement informed, compliant solutions for managing employee disability accommodations and leaves.
Trust is at the heart of a strong employer-employee relationship.
Employers want to create an inclusive workplace that allows engagement and participation by all employees. Our job is to help them make difficult decisions that are fair to individuals and teams while balancing competing obligations and supporting overall business operations.
Through practical counseling, Holland & Hart helps employers untangle the web of intersecting federal and state laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), as well as state and local laws around paid sick leave, family leave, and pregnancy.
Our experienced team thinks creatively to develop workable accommodation and leave solutions for a wide range of jobs across industries, whether an employee works at a desk or on an oil rig. We work with multistate and national employers to ensure accommodation and leave decisions are consistent across worksites.
We also develop training and compliance programs tailored to each employer’s workplace culture so supervisors and human resources professionals can make informed, compliant decisions. If charges of disability discrimination or FMLA violations occur at the agency level or result in litigation, our team vigorously defends clients’ decisions and compliance programs.
