Webinar: Top Four Accommodation Strategies HR Needs to Know Now
If the past year-plus in living and working in the time of COVID-19 has taught us anything, it is how to be flexible. And nowhere is this flexibility more apparent and more needed than when handling workplace accommodation issues.
Practically, employers that accommodate employees have better engagement and better retention. Legally, employers have two obligations when they must accommodate under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Title VII.
In this 60-minute webinar, attorney Jonathan Hyman, a partner with Wickens Herzer Panza and author of the nationally-recognized Ohio Employer Law Blog explores both - those under the ADA for employees' physical and mental impairments to enable them to perform the essential functions of their jobs, and under Title VII for employees' sincerely held religious beliefs, practices, and observance.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- How to navigate the interactive accommodation process under the ADA and Title VII;
- The accommodations an employer must consider if it's mandating the COVID-19 vaccine;
- When continued or new work from home programs are (and are not) proper reasonable accommodations;
- How long is too long for an extended medical leave of absence; and
- How FMLA leaves of absence impact employers' leave of absence accommodation obligations.
