CDF Webinar: Disability-Related Accommodations – What “Reasonable Accommodation” Looks Like In Practice

Responding to employee requests for accommodation is one of the most challenging areas in employment law.  This is due to a lack of bright line rules, inconsistencies between governmental regulations and court opinions, and efforts by the courts to continue to broaden employer obligations under the ADA and California’s fair employment laws.

In a one-hour webinar, Marianne Koepf and Teresa W. Ghali will address current developments in this area, and provide guidance in dealing with some of the more difficult issues, such as how to respond to employee requests for indefinite leaves, lengthy leaves, and/or intermittent leaves; accommodation of disabilities related to mental health issues; when reassignment to another position is required; and when employees can be disciplined or terminated for conduct caused by a disability.  In addition, the presenters will address the interaction between disability and leave laws, as well as potential liability for failure to engage in the interactive process.

This webinar is designed for employment attorneys, human resource professionals, business owners, managers and others who oversee or participate in the accommodation process.
