Employment Law Discussion

Tom Harrington, The Employment Law Group, Washington DC

June 18, 2019

Topics covered:

1. Client/Caregiver Discrimination Issues

Can an agency honor a client’s request to avoid assigning certain “types” of caregivers? Some real-life examples:

  • Can a client state that because of his religious beliefs, he doesn’t want a caregiver that is a homosexual coming into his home?

  • What about smoking? Can a client request a caregiver who doesn’t smoke? Can a caregiver request not to be assigned to a smoker’s home? 

  • Can a client request that caregivers with visible tattoos not be assigned to their home?

  • Can a client request a female or male caregiver?

  • How should an agency handle a client who refuses care from an African American, a Latina, a caregiver wearing a head covering (for religious reasons – a Muslim, a Mennonite, etc.), or having other religious beliefs that they do not align with. 

    •  Does the agency have to get a replacement?

How can an agency best avoid workplace discrimination charges when taking into consideration client preferences?

  • Specific example: A client discriminates against a home care worker (HCW) and the agency immediately removes the home care worker. Could the HCW file a complaint with the Department of Labor because the client is discriminating against them? 

2. Employment Classification

What are the legal requirements and implications of classifying someone as an independent contractor versus an employee in home care.

 

What are the main distinctions between independent contractors and employees? Can a person in a management role still be an independent contractor?

3. Direct Hire and Do Not Compete Clauses

How do Direct Hire Clauses/Do not compete clauses work in practice? What are the core elements to ensure a strong clause? How effective are they?

 

4. Employee Termination 

What are best practices for firing an employee-- what documentation is required to protect the employer?

Compensación al Trabajador y Beneficios a los Empleados en la Atención Domiciliaria

La dominancia del idioma inglés ha sido un eje de poder y exclusión en la sociedad de los Estados Unidos. Tenemos el poder de cambiar esta realidad, empezando en nuestras propias comunidades. Por esta razón, la Fundación de Desarrollo Cooperativo (CDF) ha proporcionado una traducción al español de esta exposición. Esperamos que este seminario web bilingüe sea un punto de comunicación, aprendizaje y participación con un público más amplio, que a menudo es excluido de conversaciones relacionadas con la compensación por accidente laboral y los beneficios. Sabemos lo importante que es hablar y reflexionar sobre una gran variedad de experiencias al compartir historias de la educación, el racismo, y la organización en nuestra comunidad de atención domiciliaria.

Un reto que enfrentamos en esta traducción del inglés al español fue en abordar el hecho de que el idioma español convencionalmente utiliza artículos, sustantivos y pronombres masculinos, aun para describir a personas de todos los géneros. Con el fin de reconocer que las mujeres, las personas trans, y las personas de género no normativo son miembros importantes de nuestras comunidades, que a menudo se hacen invisibles a través del uso tradicional de los indicadores de género del idioma español, hemos evitado, en lo posible, el uso del lenguaje de género. También hemos adoptado la práctica cada vez más común de utilizar una "e" en lugar de las vocales tradicionales “a” y “o”.

¡Esperamos que disfrute de la traducción de esta obra pionera e histórica, y nos gustaría escuchar sus opiniones y sugerencias acerca de la versión en español de este texto!
