Reasonable Accommodations

Thursday, October 29, 2020
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM Eastern Time Zone


The ADA requires that employers provide accommodations for applicants and employees with disabilities in order to remove workplace barriers to provide equal employment opportunity. For many employers understanding when and how they must comply can be, at times, complex. This session will help employers develop effective policies, procedures, and best practices that can assure full compliance as well as help to successfully respond to reasonable accommodation requests and needs resulting in creating a productive work environment for all employees.

Questions for presenters:

1 I understand employers can’t ask if a candidate requires accommodations during the interview process. I read in some cases an employer can if the need is obvious. What about hidden disabilities? An autistic person may struggle with the interview process. If asked if any accommodations are needed the candidate could relay their interview challenges and the process could be adjusted. Where’s the line on what can be asked during an interview?
2 When can an employer ask for a fitness for duty when they believe it is not a reasonable accommodation due to their position?
