Advanced Registration DeadlineOctober 15, 2018


Can a company still insist on reliable attendance in today’s world of work that is full of seemingly-endless employee protections?  How can a company comply with its wide-ranging legal obligations when a worker is ill or injured ... and allegedly unable work? How/when can the company offer "reasonable accommodation"? Can a company ever really show that an accommodation is an “undue burden”? When can the company enforce its attendance policy and actually end a worker’s employment? When must the company hold the person's job open and offer the worker an opportunity for reinstatement; and what if business circumstances have changed in the employee’s absence?

This is a session that you won’t want to miss - evaluating the company's exposures is critical to your business!

Greg Hare

Greg Hare has been an employment lawyer at Ogletree Deakins his entire career, ever since 1991. He assists companies with human resources and employment-related litigation matters, including wrongful termination claims, sexual harassment, employment discrimination, employment contracts, trade secrets, and non-compete agreements.

He advises clients on a wide range of human resources topics, such as employee discipline and discharge, severance planning, independent contractor classifications, wage payment, family and medical leave, disability law, military leave, joint employment issues, affirmative action and reductions in force.

Mr. Hare also counsels clients on traditional labor relations matters involving union avoidance, decertification, strike contingency planning, double-breasting, grievance administration and arbitration, collective bargaining, unfair labor practice litigation, and other matters involving the National Labor Relations Board, including “protected concerted activity” cases.

Mr. Hare encourages companies to develop proactive human resources strategies that are designed to minimize exposure to costly litigation and disputes.  This commonly includes conducting comprehensive employment law compliance audits, employment policy design and review, management training and counseling, and simulated problem solving workshops.
