How to accommodate an employee with a disability

Printer-friendly version

Speaker:Becky Dent & Robin Ross

March 17, 2016 (Thursday)

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
