Reasonable Accommodations in the Workplace and the Law Against Discrimination

Printer-friendly version

Speaker:NJ Division on Civil Rights

The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) requires employers to make adjustments to job or work requirements that make it possible for employees to perform the essential functions of their job and enjoy equal employment opportunities. Under the NJLAD, reasonable accommodations apply to disability, religion, and pregnancy and breastfeeding/bodyfeeding. This training will provide an overview of what reasonable accommodations are, who is eligible for them, and how requests for accommodations are initiated and carried out. Through case studies and other interactive exercises, participants will examine topics including the interactive process, undue hardship, non-apparent disabilities, the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, and telework as an accommodation.
