University Gets It Right When It Says, 'Enough Is Enough': Tenth Circuit Upholds Inflexible Leave Policy
Porter Wright Morris & Arthur LLP Link to more items from this source
June 5, 2014
"[T]he court held there is nothing inherently discriminatory about an inflexible leave policy, in fact, so long as the leave time is not unreasonably short, such policies can protect the rights of the disabled employees, by making sure they are not singled out.... The EEOC still frowns upon inflexible leave policies; therefore, it would still be wise for employers to go through the interactive process to determine how much additional leave is required and whether the additional requested leave would be unreasonable under the circumstances." [Hwang v. Kansas State Univ., No. 13-3070 (10th Cir. May 29, 2014)]
