TPD President, Kevin Johnson, Wins Advocacy Award

Posted to Announcement by Ms. Gwen Himes P.E. of Traffic Planning and Design, Inc. (TPD) at 2:14 PM

{"ops":[{"insert":"On Wednesday, June 19, 2019, the Transportation Management Association of Chester County (TMACC) named"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":" Kevin Johnson, PE"},{"insert":" the Advocacy Award winner during their Annual Membership Meeting and Awards Luncheon. This meeting is held annually for members and colleagues to celebrate TMACC's successes over the past year and honor their members who have gone above and beyond to “live” their mission. Specifically, the award for Advocacy is presented to an individual or group that displays institutional leadership working towards advancing TMACC’s priorities, including improving air quality, congestion mitigation and improving access to transportation.\n\nAs the President of Traffic Planning and Design, Inc. (TPD), Mr. Johnson's areas of expertise are in transportation engineering and design, transportation planning, environmental analyses, and providing expert witness services for accident cases. Foundationally, he believes his duty as an engineer is to be involved in the public decision-making process in order to raise awareness of the need to address the rapidly decaying state of our transportation infrastructure. Over the past few years, Mr. Johnson worked tirelessly for the passage of Acts 88 and 89 in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He believes that as engineers, he and his peers are trained to identify and solve problems, so he has dedicated his career to educating the public and elected officials at the local, state and national levels on transportation issues and why increased funding is needed.\n\nMr. Johnson’s efforts and leadership, in part, have also brought recent recognition to the firm; Greater Valley Forge Transportation Management Association (GVF) named TPD the Engineering Leadership Award winner at their Annual Meeting on May 20, 2019. A representative from GVF said “as they celebrate their 30th anniversary as a firm, we are excited to honor TPD for their dedication as a leader in transportation engineering and design and for their continued support in advancing TDM [transportation demand management] throughout the region.”\n"}]}

Can I Legally Lose My Job for Undergoing Drug Treatment?

Posted to Announcement by Mr. Joseph Ashdale of Ambrosia Treatment Center at 3:41 PM

{"ops":[{"insert":"For many addicts and alcoholics, the biggest fear about inpatient treatment losing their job and falling behind on bills. No one wants to tell their boss or their co-workers that they have a problem, not to mention the fact that they will need to take significant time off for rehab. Some addicts hesitate when getting help because they worry about how people in the workplace will react. Fortunately, there are protections in place for people who want to get help. \n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)"},{"insert":"\n\nFMLA is a federal law which entitles eligible employees to take unpaid, protected leave from work for family and medical reasons. Typically, employees are allowed to keep their health insurance during their time off. FMLA applies to serious health conditions that make it difficult or impossible for the employee to perform his or her work. \n\nEmployees are entitled to 12 weeks of leave in a 12-month period, which could potentially cover up to 90 days of rehabilitation. The employer may not take action against an employee for seeking substance abuse treatment. To be eligible for FMLA, an employee must work for a company for at least 12 months and have worked over 1,250 hours. Absenteeism from work due to drug abuse is not covered under the Family Medical Leave Act. \n\n"},{"attributes":{"bold":true},"insert":"Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)"},{"insert":"\n\nThe ADA protects employees against discrimination due to an illness or disability. Alcoholism is a qualified illness under the ADA, so businesses cannot discriminate against active or recovering alcoholics. And, companies must make reasonable accommodations for recovering employees, including reasonable time off for therapy or support meetings. There are exceptions, though. If an employee’s performance suffered before treatment, and the employer can prove the issue, then the ADA does not offer protection to this employee.  \n\nIllegal drug use is not covered under the ADA, whether someone is a first-time user or fully addicted. However, if an employee who is sober but has a history of addiction, is covered by the ADA. It is best to check with the current employer’s health insurance to verify coverage.\n"}]}
