Berke-Weiss Law attorneys, Laurie Berke-Weiss, Alex Berke, and Rosa Aliberti, spoke at the Endometriosis Foundation of America's Global Patient Symposium, commonly referred to as Patient Day, about the legal rights and protections for those with endometriosis. The talk was held at the Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City on March 18, 2023 and featured 25 expert speakers, many nationally or world renowned.
Their presentation discussed the use of reasonable accommodations as a tool for those with endometriosis or other chronic health conditions. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, employees with a disability have the right to request reasonable accommodations, and the employer is required to engage in an interactive process with the employee to determine whether the accommodation poses an undue burden to the employer. The presentation provided valuable knowledge to those living with chronic health conditions on ensuring they are able to get the care they need while maintaining their careers.
