The Interactive Process: Reasonable Accommodation of Disabilities in the Workplace - Irvine
Join us for breakfast and a discussion on a hot HR topic. This complimentary event is a great opportunity to network and talk with other HR professionals and our lawyers in an informal and collaborative setting to get the information you need to stay in the know.
The Interactive Process: Reasonable Accommodation of Disabilities in the Workplace
Accommodating leave and administering the interactive process and disability accommodations can be burdensome and feel like a full-time job, but the law does have limits. This program will discuss the bright line rules and the gray areas of disability-related laws and provide guidance on when the company has satisfied its duties. The program will include a discussion of common problems employers and managers face, including at what point an employee’s leave becomes an undue hardship and when an employer may safely end the interactive process or consider terminating disabled employees. We will also hear a special presentation by the Jewish Family & Children’s Service (“JFCS”) of Long Beach and West Orange County, a nonprofit organization that provides mental health training to employers. JFCS will present on mental health issues in the workplace that employers must understand and properly address.
