Disability leave and accommodation are always hot topics in California. This episode, Harry is privileged to interview Tim B. McCaffrey, Esq., a noted employment trial lawyer in Los Angeles with a specialty and substantial trial experience in both disability discrimination and failure to accommodate claims, who represents both employees and management. Tim and Harry address disability discrimination, leave as a reasonable accommodation, and the workings of the interactive process in today’s California workplace. They discuss important best practices for any employer facing a situation where an employee is disabled and requests leave.
