You will learn about your requirements regarding reasonable accommodations so you can avoid disability claims.  

Reasonable accommodations often mean different things to you and your employees. This session will review your obligations to engage in the interactive process under the ADAAA and what courts have said can be a reasonable accommodation and what may not be reasonable.  During this session, we will review:

  • EEOC guidance on reasonable accommodations.
  • Recent cases on the interactive process, accommodation strategies and pitfalls to avoid in the process.
  • Best practices and common pitfalls to avoid when dealing with disabled applicants and employees.
