How to accommodate an employee with a disability

Printer-friendly version

Speaker:Becky Dent & Robin Ross

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as amended, and the NJ Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) both require employers to accommodate employees with disabilities.  Reasonable accommodations are adjustments to a work setting that make it possible for qualified employees with disabilities to perform the essential functions of their jobs.  Accommodations must be determined using a case-by-case approach and may, in some instances, prove to be an undue hardship.  Join us for this one hour session as we highlight some important considerations, including:

•  When must we accommodate?
•  The interactive process
•  Thinking outside “the box” – finding effective accommodations
•  Leave as an accommodation
•  Determining undue hardship
•  Writing ADA compliant job descriptions
