Welcome to the Trupp HR Legal Corner designed to keep business leaders informed of critical employment legislation and case law.
Discrimination risk when transferring employees
Most employers have a duty to accommodate an employee with a disability. Be cautious when transferring that employee to a new position to ensure that it is not perceived as discrimination.
FMLA extends medical leave rights to same-sex marriages
Regardless of where they live, workers in legal same-sex marriages now have the same rights to job-protected leave as those in opposite-sex marriages under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
NLRB provides clear guidelines on employee handbook policies
All employers, including those without unions, are advised to review the NLRB’s recently released 30-page memo on employee handbook policies.

Consider a third party review of your handbook by Trupp HR to ensure that it’s complete and that your policies are compliant and up-to-date.
