They’ve Asked for What?!? Avoiding the Trips and Traps of Reasonable Accommodation for Disabled Employees

  • When: Oct 15, 2018

Summary of Program

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.

Program Highlights

This interactive 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. We will follow the life of an accommodation request, using a case study built from the various cases we have seen over the years. Topics will include:

  • How to Determine Who is Entitled to an Accommodation
  • How to Engage in the Interactive Process and 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)
  • Service Animals in the Workplace
  • How to Effectively Document the Accommodation
  • Recent Developments in Accommodation Law
