Does Your Service Animal Need a Stand Up Desk? Discrimination and Accommodation of Employees, Customers and Third-Parties

November 17 2016

 

Summary of Program

The Labor and Employment Group at Weintraub Tobin is pleased to offer this very informative training session that will help business owners, human resource professionals, and managers to both comply with legal record keeping requirements and also prepare and maintain effective defensive documentation.

Most business owners know that customers and employees may need to be accommodated from time to time for various reasons. Often this is because of an employee’s disability, medical condition or a condition present on property owned by the business and open to the public. It is important for business owners and employers to understand and comply with how the courts and various federal and state regulatory agencies define accommodations, as well as learn what their rights and obligations are regarding: (1) engaging in the interactive process; (2) providing reasonable accommodations; and (3) removing barriers to access.

Program Highlights

This informative seminar will provide an overview of the many accommodations business owners, employers and Human Resources professionals may be forced to consider, who should be accommodated, and how to engage in an interactive process to determine an appropriate accommodation.

  • How to Determine Who is Entitled to an Accommodation
  • How to Engage in the Interactive Process and How to Know When to Initiate the Initial discussion
  • The Various Protected Classes and/or Activities Entitling an Employee to Accommodation (including things like disability, religion, and illiteracy, to name a few)
