AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT:
Reasonable Accommodations Process and Handling Requests Properly
Presented by Rosemary G. Kenyon and Megan P. Black
Employees are asking for reasonable accommodations more often and for a wider array of medical conditions. The kinds of accommodations sought are more varied than ever, including working from home, extended leave, allowances for more frequent absences, schedule changes, transfers to other jobs, modified work duties and retraining, among others. Many employers find themselves lost in the process or, worse, in court defending their actions. This webinar will make sense of the tangled web, discuss several recent court decisions and provide practical tips on developing a framework to successfully handle requests for reasonable accommodations.
