    " When Frank comes to work on Monday as Frances and Other Sensitive Personnel Issues Employers May Face"

    "When Frank Comes To Work On Monday As Frances, And Other Sensitive Personnel Issues Employers May Face" presents a variety of issues raised by the employment discrimination statutes including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.  The presentation will focus on recent cases that have considered particular issues of whether the discrimination statutes protect employees claiming protection and, if so, what the extent of that protection may be.
