Presented by Sarah Tuck

Reasonable accommodation is the new focus in disability law, and agencies will have to spend more time dealing with it day to day. Make sure every agency decision-maker involved in the interactive process is comfortable with carrying out the steps needed to successfully address accommodation issues – and ultimately avoid disability-based liability.

With real-world experience gained from working in the trenches of federal HR, presenter Sarah Tuck gives you all the background information you need:

  • A brief overview of the ADAAA, focusing on what managers need to know
  • How the increased coverage under the ADAAA could impact agency budgets and what you can do to minimize the effects
  • Where the breakdown in legal compliance with the ADAAA usually happens

Plus, you'll learn to navigate the process from start to finish with clear guidance to:

  • Recognize even the most subtle requests for reasonable accommodation and signals not to ignore
  • Identify essential functions of positions and possible accommodation options
  • Determine if a person is a qualified individual with a disability
  • Distinguish between a qualified individual with a disability and undue hardship

What’s more, you’ll discover techniques to engage in sensitive give-and-take conversations with employees about reasonable accommodation, including specific phrases to spur the discussion and keep it moving in a positive, productive direction.
