The New "Reasonable" Test for Accommodations Post-COVID19
Even after employees return to work and business operations return to normal, the impact of COVID-19 has changed the workplace for the foreseeable future. And until a vaccine and tests become widely available, the threat of another outbreak and employee concerns or fears regarding COVID-19 will continue to permeate throughout the workplace. As a result, employers should be prepared for new accommodations and requests related to employee disabilities and telecommuting, and be able to navigate new ADA guidelines, state guidelines, and even proclamations from Washington’s governor. Together, Margaret Burnham and Ryan R. Jones from our Seattle office will discuss how to define what is "reasonable" and how to engage with employees in the interactive process in the new normal following the COVID-19 pandemic.
This webinar is pending 1-hour WA-CLE and HRCI/SHRM.
