Training Overview

Are you following the ADA interactive process? Learn the specific steps and current requirements.

July is Disability Pride Month, the ideal time for you to review and update your practices to ensure employees with disabilities receive the accommodations to which they are legally entitled.

As organizations push employees to return to workplaces this summer, requests for reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) have increased.

You need to understand how the ADA applies to specific employees, applicants, and situations. You are required to follow an “interactive process” to determine what “reasonable” accommodations must be made. The EEOC and courts provide conflicting and evolving guidance about the requirements. For example, the February 2022 Appeals Court decision in Lamm v. Devaughn James LLC addressed whether part-time work is a reasonable accommodation.
