About

Walk through the “do’s and don’ts” of the ADA

The duty to provide a reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities is considered one of the most important statutory requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Although the ADA and the duty to provide a “reasonable accommodation” can be a trap for the wary, it doesn’t have to be.

Get practical tips for employees and best practices for employers

We’ll explore: 

  • trends in current case law regarding reasonable accommodations 
  • an employer’s duty to engage in the interactive process
  • current EEOC guidance on specific health conditions
  • employer defenses of undue burden and direct threat
  • your ethical responsibilities in various situations

Our experienced faculty will answer your questions

  • What triggers the interactive process?
  • What happens when doctors’ notes conflict?
  • How much leave is required for a disabled employee? 
  • Are “no-fault” attendance policies legal?
  • Is an accommodation required for pregnant workers? 
  • What challenges do employers and public accommodations confront with “service dogs” or other “comfort/therapy animals”?
  • Is the use of medical marijuana protected by the ADA?
  • What are your ethical obligations when it relates to your client making inconsistent disability statements (i.e. judicial estoppel)?
