Part of the Conquering Employment Law Conundrums Webinar Series
Presented on: April 10, 2013

Are you confused about when and how your community action agency (CAA) must accommodate employee requests for individualized treatment? Do you struggle with striking a balance between accommodating employees and maintaining a productive and effective workplace? This webinar will provide you with practical suggestions on how to respond to such requests, especially ones for religious observances and/or a “disability.” We will examine the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments of 2008 (ADAA) along with other discrimination laws as we carefully explore an employer’s duty to provide reasonable accommodations. We will also discuss the role of the “interactive process” and the “undue hardship” defense along with the policies and procedures your CAA can implement to help protect itself from liability and optimize its operations.
