Federal and state laws require employers to make “reasonable accommodations” because of disability, religion, and more recently, pregnancy and transgenderism. And unfortunately, failure to heed this “reasonable accommodation” obligation and engage in a diligent, even creative “interactive process” can result in expensive litigation.
Technology, however, now provides many solutions to employers’ most vexing reasonable accommodation situations. For example, advancements in dictation apps can open a world of opportunity to people with some sensory and learning disabilities like dyslexia; likewise, the availability of virtual meetings, adaptive technologies, and document-sharing platforms all enable people with disabilities to meet the challenges of many positions previously beyond their limitations. This webinar will underscore employers’ expanding reasonable accommodation obligations and offer practical (and sometimes even FREE) solutions for accommodating with accountability.
This webinar is available LIVE on the 4th of every month from November to February, to enable participants to ask questions and share technology tips. Because of the important subject matter, this webinar will also be available ON DEMAND to “accommodate” even the busiest schedules.
