Published: January 25, 2013
Summary of Program
Most employers know that employees may need to be accommodated from time to time for various reasons, most commonly due to an employee’s disability or medical condition. However, it is important for employers to understand and comply with how the courts and various federal and state regulatory agencies define accommodations, as well as learn what an employer’s rights and obligations are regarding:
- Engaging in the interactive process
- Providing reasonable accommodations
This informative seminar will cover the many accommodations employers and HR Professionals may be forced to consider, who should be accommodated, and how to engage in an interactive process to determine an appropriate accommodation. Topics will include:
- 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 an accommodation—including things like disability, religion, and illiteracy, to name a few;
