This session will present an update on the legal framework and offer practical tools for the reasonable accommodations process under ADA and FMLA.
Track: Employment Law & Legislation
Post ADA and FMLA amendments employers face increasing issues relating to accommodations and leaves. This is especially true with the expansion of the definition of disabilities. This interactive session will address such questions as: what are the responsibilities and consideration of each party during accommodation discussions and when providing accommodations and medical leaves. The session will also include case study exercises and practical applications for managing this complex process.
