Webinar Recording: Reduce Your ADA Burden – Return-to-Work Strategy & Implementation

DMECResources, VEF Archives


The evolution of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) brings additional complexity to an employer’s return-to-work (RTW) strategy. While most HR professionals are skilled at managing employees on short- or long-term disability, understanding how the RTW program can satisfy obligations under the ADA is a new frontier. Can the RTW discussions and reasonable accommodations developed serve as your interactive process? Are you obligated to consider all RTW accommodations as an ADA request? Can your RTW policy have a time limit?

This session answered these questions, and explored how to develop a robust RTW strategy by working in step with ADA requirements. This webinar also provided a case study from an organization that successfully implemented a strategy that enables them to address both RTW and ADA challenges.
