Nancy S. Shilepsky to moderate the Massachusetts Bar Association’s, “Family and Medical Leave Act Update: Esler, Chase – Practical Implications”
Nancy S. Shilepsky, partner in the firm’s Employment Law Group, to moderate the Massachusetts Bar Association’s, “Family and Medical Leave Act Update: Esler, Chase – Practical Implications,” on Monday, February 27 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM at the MBA, 20 West Street, Boston.
Two important Family and Medical Leave Act cases were decided in 2016, Esler v. Sylvia-Reardon at the Supreme Judicial Court and Chase v. United States Postal Service from the First Circuit. Lawyers representing employers and/or employees will want to know what these cases say and what they say about how we should be advising our clients.
Topics will include best practices for requesting leaves, administering leaves and returns from leave. We will also discuss under what circumstances a request for a leave extension may become a reasonable accommodation request, and how such requests should be made and managed.
