Beth Deragon To Speak On Mental Health in the Workplace

McLane Middleton attorney Beth A. Deragon will be presenting at an upcoming Human Resources Association Greater Concord (HRAGC) event on American with Disabilities Act (ADA) issues related to mental health in the workplace.  The event will take place on February 15, 2018 in Concord, N.H.

As part of the presentation, Beth will be discussing mental illness and how employers will need to give consideration to the ADA when working with employees who have disclosed such a condition. Beth will equip attendees with what they need to know to avoid pitfalls and how to accommodate potential needs of an employee with a mental health condition.

Beth’s practice is focused on advising employers, including independent schools, on all aspects of the employment relationship and on defending employers in discrimination and other claims pending before state and federal agencies.  She has over 10 years’ experience assisting employers with employment issues including: hiring, corrective/disciplinary action and termination; background checks; drug and alcohol testing; training supervisors and employees in harassment prevention & managing within the law; handbooks and policies; wage and hour compliance and audits; independent contractor status; leaves of absence and requests for reasonable accommodations; non-competition, non-solicitation and non-disclosure agreements; classification of employees as exempt/non-exempt; safety and workplace violence; unemployment compensation claims; reductions in force/lay-offs; and separation/severance agreements.

A member of HRAGC’s board, Beth can be reached in McLane Middleton’s Manchester office at (603) 628-1490 or
