1A Reasonable Accommodation

1A Reasonable Accommodation

This course begins with an orderly, issue-by-issue introduction to the practice of reasonable accommodation (RA). A checklist of practical, compliance-focused practices, which an absence or disability manager can include in her daily routine will be outlined. The narrative behind recent federal court settlements will be used as a quick illustration of the legal consequences of non-compliance. Participants are encouraged to bring questions and quandaries including, “What is the role of reasonable accommodation in a workers’ compensation case?” “If a medical restriction does not connect to a physical demand of the job, do I have to accommodation the individual?” “What do I do when a physician demands a specific accommodation solution such as an expensive chair or sit-stand station?” “Does my inability to read people’s minds turn into a non-compliance charge for failure to accommodate?”
