Date: Tuesday, December 13, 2016

Time: 1:00pm to 2:15pm Eastern Standard Time

Your Hosts: Kara M. Maciel and Eric J. Conn

Although not typically thought of as a hotbed of OSHA/Employment law activity, access to bathrooms by both employees, as well as members of the public, has become a high profile issue of late.  OSHA has always required employers to provide their employees with prompt access to sanitary toilet facilities, so they will not suffer adverse health effects if toilets are not available when needed.  Recently, OSHA, along with other federal, state and local authorities, began to prohibit discriminatory practices with regard to restroom access based on the principle that individuals have the right to use facilities consistent with their gender identity.  There are also a host of requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act that must be met for a bathroom to be considered accessible and usable by an individual with a disability.  This webinar will review the requirements in this area, and will provide specific strategies to address this new and complex area of the law.

Participants will learn about the following:

  • Explanation of OSHA's Sanitation Standard
  • Transgender workplace obligations
  • Federal Agency Interpretations of Title VII to include discrimination based on gender identity or transgender status
  • State laws regarding discriminatory practices in regard to restroom access
  • Best practices for overcoming typical bathroom ADA accessibility issues
