FEHA and ADA Reasonable Accommodation
Tools and Strategies
The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) each provide reasonable accommodation coverage to employed individuals with a physical or mental disability. Employers with five or more employees are required to comply with the spirit and standards of the FEHA.
Join us on October 31, 2019 for a practical review of three FEHA/ADA compliance topics:
- The Reasonable Accommodation Interactive Process
- The Role of Ergonomic Evaluation in the Reasonable Accommodation Process
- Reasonable Accommodation – Opportunities and Responsibilities
The objectives of this learning experience include:
- Review the seven-step reasonable accommodation progression
- Know how to use the interactive process to confirm the existence of a qualified disability
- Recognize the essential functions of the job
- Structure a sound solution to accommodate the essential functions
- Preparation for negotiating an undue hardship determination
- Determine how and when to communicate with direct supervisors about an accommodation solution
- Learn how to include ergonomic evaluation services into the accommodation process
An employer’s responsibility to engage in the reasonable accommodation process has side benefits. This three-hour workshop will include a discussion of the unseen opportunities which that flow from the FEHA/ADA interactive process.
