ADA Reasonable Accommodation Issues

in the Age of COVID-19

Program Description: 

David K. Fram, a nationally renowned subject matter expert on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), will share his insight and perspective on a wide variety of reasonable accommodation issues that have arisen during the COVID-19 pandemic. David's interactive session will focus on the following:

  • Update on COVID-19 reasonable accommodation issues, including specific questions of work-at-home, leave, protective equipment, and vaccination requirements.
  • Discussion of the latest cases on practical reasonable accommodation issues, including critical new cases on the meaning of "reasonable," what technically triggers the duty to interact, when accommodations are and are not required, whether an employer will be “punished” for doing a “good deed” by providing more than might have been required by the law (including allowing employees to work at home because of COVID safety issues), and particular accommodation requests such as leave (including repeated leave extensions), schedule adjustments, change of supervisors, non-competitive reassignment, shift changes, and a perfume-free workplace.

Please come to this virtual session prepared to have all of your pressing reasonable accommodation questions answered.
