Breakout Session: Disability Inclusions/Accommodations
Shayna Balch and Pavneet Uppal, Fisher Phillips
Do you ever ask yourself: Must I be so accommodating? The passage of the American with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) vastly expanded the universe of employees entitled to a reasonable accommodation. Before the ADAAA, employers sometimes rejected accommodation requests because an employee could not prove a disability. Now, employers face a confusing array of conditions that very well may be considered disabilities. With real-life examples, this session explores an employer’s obligation to engage in the interactive process, the components of the interactive process, best practices in the process and the reasonableness of various requests.
