Welcome to the third quarter edition of SuperVision Today
, the quarterly e-newsletter published by Spilman's Labor & Employment Group.
One issue on which our clients repeatedly seek guidance is how to assess requests for accommodations by an employee asserting a disability. In order to help our clients navigate this problematic area of the law, we here at Spilman have devised a flowchart to help businesses in responding to requests for an accommodation. This flowchart will help make sure you are assessing the request properly and considering possible issues. If you would like to receive a copy of this matrix, please click here
to email Pamela Kesling and we would be happy to send one to you.
Our final SuperVision Symposium of the year was last month in Greensboro, North Carolina. Feedback from our many clients and friends who attended demonstrates this was one of the most valued yet, and planning already has begun for next year's event series. If you have any ideas or suggestions, including topics you would like us to address, please contact April Bias at 304.720.5699 or firstname.lastname@example.org to share your thoughts.
Our teaching efforts don't stop with SuperVision, however. Sam Brock and Mitch Rhein will be presenting our latest webinar on November 9 at noon on how to mitigate the risk of lawsuits related to workplace injuries. If you want to attend, please click here

, Carrie Harris offers timely advice in this election season for employers who are dealing with divisive non-work issues in the workplace.
