Brooks Pierce Attorneys Present Webinar on Mental Health Issues Affecting Companies and Their Employees


Brooks Pierce attorneys Patricia Goodson and Sarah Saint presented a webinar on mental health issues affecting companies and their employees.

The webinar, "Navigating the ADA, FMLA and Workers' Compensation Laws," discussed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and workers’ compensation laws as recent issues relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, access to childcare and employee burnout spur excessive employee turnover, lost productivity and legal liability.

This webinar offered an active approach to addressing these issues and covered:

  • Compliance with ADA regulations
  • Meeting the requirements of FMLA
  • Workers’ Compensation law
  • Creating a positive work environment

Goodson counsels management clients on a variety of employment-related issues including federal and state discrimination and harassment laws; wage and hour compliance; employment policies and handbooks; employment agreements; restructuring; severance programs and policies; confidentiality, assignment of inventions and non-competition agreements; trade secrets; workplace violence; and drug and alcohol screening. She also counsels clients on issues arising under Title VII, the ADA, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the FMLA, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act.

Saint represents employers before government agencies and in state and federal courts on numerous employment law matters, including Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charges and lawsuits, common law employment claims, contract disputes, and discrimination and harassment claims. Saint also counsels clients on compliance with state and federal laws, employment policies and handbooks, and employment agreements. She has particular experience with civil rights claims, representing parties on both sides of civil rights and discrimination-related lawsuits.
