The workplace brings together many types of people of many different backgrounds, each with their own perspectives and particular needs. For employers, it is a challenge to recognize and address these different groups of individuals properly.

This webinar will discuss recent activities at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and an employer’s duty to accommodate disability, religion and pregnancy in the workplace.
