It's important for law firm employers to develop policies and procedures that identify and effectively respond to disabled employees and requests for reasonable accommodation. And recent changes and court interpretations to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) — specifically the expansion of the definition of employees considered disabled under the ADA and increase in Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charges alleging violations of the ADA — make it even more of a priority. Participants will be able to identify triggers to the ADA interactive process, develop a systematic process for responding to requests for accommodation, and learn the most common reasonable accommodations that must be provided to employees.
Audience Statement: This session assumes that participants have a working knowledge of human resource management in the legal industry and U.S labor and employment laws. No advance preparation is required.
