Clayton Bailey Featured on the Keep It Legal Podcast

Avian influenza. Inflation. Inconsistent governmental guidance.  These are all factors contributing to higher turkey prices and supply shortages this 2022 holiday season, Bailey Brauer co-founder Clayton Bailey tells the Keep It Legal podcast.  “Poultry producers are doing everything they can to make things safe,” Mr. Bailey said. “At the same time, they are trying to listen to guidance that is inconsistent.”    While industry leaders continue to navigate these challenges, the food production companies and their workers who have worked hard to maintain consistent, safe food supplies have been the unsung heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic.   “The companies and the individuals who work for those companies don’t get enough credit.”  Listen anywhere you get your podcasts!

John Bosco Discusses Segregating Workforces by Vaccination Status with Houston Fox26

Creating separate teams or workspaces for its vaccinated and un-vaccinated workers are options some employers have looked into for limiting exposure and preventing the spread of COVID-19.  Fox26 in Houston turned to Bailey Brauer Labor, Employment and ADA Partner John Bosco for details on the legalities of segregating the workplace. "Technically, it's legal. It really comes down to practical considerations more than violating a particular statute but we've cautioned our clients against it," he said.  "The two laws that most frequently come into play here would be the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), where an individual might not be able to get a vaccine because of another unrelated health concern.  The other is Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which goes into general discrimination for other protected categories." Although vaccine passports are now banned in Texas, Mr. Bosco says, a private business can ask employees about their vaccination status if they have decided to segregate employees. If a business does implement separate areas for workers, employers may ask who has been vaccinated, but most are not mandating that employees disclose their vaccine status.  Instead, employers ask workers to voluntarily provide that information.  Employee privacy and confidentiality of personal medical information are important considerations that also need to be taken into account before any policy related to vaccination status is implemented. The full interview can be viewed at Fox26Houston.com.

John Bosco Provides Texas Lawyer Magazine With Look into Increase of Accessibility Lawsuits in Texas

Bailey Brauer labor, employment and ADA partner John Bosco provided expert insights on the increase in and impact of ADA Title III lawsuits in Texas in “Accessibility Lawsuits in Texas on the Rise” published February 28, 2020, by Texas Lawyer magazine. As Mr. Bosco explains in the article, there has been a significant increase in Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility lawsuits, agency enforcement actions and demand letters targeting public accommodations in Texas over the past few years. “While California, New York and Florida have been the most popular states for claims alleging that individuals with disabilities encountered access barriers, these cases are becoming much more common against physical locations, websites and mobile apps with a presence in Texas. “The accessibility lawsuits filed so far this year are impacting every sector of business throughout the state. The most recent accessibility claims in Texas are related to parking, transportation services, signage, restroom fixtures, path of travel, point of sale devices, counter heights, braille gift cards, policies, training, the provision of auxiliary aids and services. Any business with a website or mobile application is also at risk of being sued by customers and employees who claim that they have encountered digital accessibility barriers,” he wrote. “To mitigate risk and reduce potential exposure, it is important to proactively identify and remediate potential violations. Implementing appropriate policies, procedures, training and updated compliance documentation is critical to prevent claims and most efficiently resolve allegations that are asserted.” The full article can be found at TexasLawyer.com.
