Weintraub Tobin Shareholder Lukas Clary to speak at SAHRA May 2018 Legal Series on Demystifying the Accommodation Process for Disabled Employees

Most employers know that employees may need to be accommodated from time to time for various reasons. Often this is because of an employee’s disability or medical condition. 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 their rights and obligations are regarding: (1) engaging in the interactive process; and (2) providing reasonable accommodations. This seminar will provide an overview of 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 Accommodations (including things like disability, religion, and illiteracy, to name a few)

• Service Animals in the Workplace

• How to Effectively Document the Accommodation

• Recent Developments in Accommodation Law
