Handling Requests For Accommodating Disabilities

The Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act (ADAAA) requires employers to view disabilities and their accompanying obligations to accommodate.

The process for doing this is not easy, and is made even more complicated by the "undue hardship" standard, as what may be a hardship for one company may be relatively easy for another.

This audio conference will walk you through how courts are applying the amendments to various fact scenarios. We will discuss how these fact patterns can guide you through what your company needs to do when an employee requests an accommodation.

Learning Objectives:

  • How the courts are applying the liberal interpretation to impairments
  • What has been found to be a disability and what hasn't
  • When your duty to engage in the interactive process is triggered
  • The employee's duty to "request" an accommodation – what does this mean?
  • What types of accommodations have the courts found to be reasonable?
  • What types of accommodations have the courts found to be an "undue hardship" for the employer?
  • How to determine if the employee can perform the essential functions of the job – what are "essential functions" anyway?
  • Why a requested leave of absence under the ADA creates an entire minefield – particularly if the employee is on workers' compensation or FMLA
  • Light duty requests and the ADA
  • Is pregnancy now a disability under the ADA requiring accommodations?
  • What to update in your job descriptions to ensure identification of the essential functions of the job
  • How to properly respond to employees requesting accommodation
  • How your organization's policies must be structured to be ADA compliant - yet still meet company needs

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
