How to accommodate employees with disabilities

Printer-friendly version

Time:10am
Speaker: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
