Employer’s dilemma: balancing ADA requirements with rules of the workplace
In many cases, it's difficult for an employer or employee to determine if they are properly following the laws set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). When a lawsuit arises, Attorney Christopher Slusser and the staff at the Slusser Law Firm in Hazleton and Philadelphia can help clients with their case.
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, employers must accommodate workers with disabilities. If an employer takes a negative employment action (firing, refusing to hire, demoting, refusing to promote, etc.) against an employee with a physical, mental or even emotional disability, the disability can’t be the reason.
Today, 77 percent of Americans go online every day, according to a recent Pew Research Center survey, and most of us maintain at least some kind of digital data in the cloud. We save emails, post to social media, and store photos in online albums.
All of this digital information has created a new issue for you, your heirs, and the technology firms that hold your assets. The key concern is maintaining your privacy and security and determining who can legally access this information upon your death.
A statute called the Revised Uniform Access to Digital Assets Act provides a legal path for fiduciaries (such as your executor or attorney-in-fact) to manage your digital assets if you die or become incapacitated. But under the law, which has been adopted (often in slightly modified versions) by most states, a fiduciary can access your digital assets if, and only if, you’ve given proper consent.
Attorney Christopher Slusser and the staff at the Slusser Law Firm in Hazleton can assist you in navigating how you should handle your digital assets.
