Anne Kuban Successfully Negotiates Necessary Work Accommodations for an Employee in the Midst of COVID-19 Pandemic

October 2020

BCKS founding Partner Anne Kuban successfully represented a client in a recent employment law matter in which the client was initially denied reasonable work accommodations.

Anne’s client, an employee who is considered part of the high-risk population susceptible to the virus, sought specific reasonable work accommodations in light of the risk posed while fulfilling their work requirements. The client’s requests were initially denied outright by the employer.

The client turned to Anne for counsel in the matter. Working through motion practice and negotiations with the employer, she secured the necessary work accommodations without engaging in protracted and potentially costly litigation. The result protected the client from undue risk in maintaining their livelihood and demonstrates the breadth of diversity in the service areas of the firm.

Anne concentrates her practice in the areas of healthcare defense and medical malpractice litigation with an emphasis on birth trauma defense, emergency medicine, and psychiatric cases. Her practice also includes general civil and tort liability, municipal defense litigation, including Section 1981 and 1983 claims, construction and employment discrimination matters including but not limited to EEOC claims.
