News Flash: Important New Rulings

Our cover stories for the July 2000 issue of California Employer Advisor deal with two important cases that may have a significant impact on employers. In one, the California Supreme Court ruled that you have the right to rescind or change personnel policies covering terms of employment. But the court set out several steps you must follow before you can legally do so. In the other case, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal said that under the ADA you can’t restrict qualified, disabled individuals from doing jobs that might endanger their own health or safety. Regardless of the risk, you may have to hire them for potentially dangerous jobs—or face a discrimination lawsuit.
