2018 Virtual Education Forum Webinar: Exploring ADA Accommodations – Beyond the Basics

DMECVirtual Education Forum, Webinars

Tuesday, July 17

9:00 am PT | 12:00 pm ET

While leave may be the most talked about accommodation under the ADA, there are a multitude of other types of accommodations with greater prevalence in the workplace. Adjusted work schedules or accessibility modifications are actually more frequently requested, and can provide room for creativity in accommodation. An employer’s ability to identify appropriate, reasonable, and sometimes out-of-the-box alternatives are all part of a compliant and robust accommodation process, and may even support successful return to work.

Join us for this webinar where we will glean insight from leaders in ADA administrative services with skill in identifying the most appropriate and reasonable accommodation, as they work with employers to evaluate and implement the interactive process. Our experts will share best practices around telecommuting, workstation modifications, job restructuring, reassignment, and more.

This webinar will be 90 minutes to accommodate additional Q&A.
