Essential Job Functions According to the ADA


Understand your legal obligations under the ADA and avoid pitfalls that lead to discrimination and failure-to-accommodate claims.

Most employers know that the Americans with Disabilities Act requires reasonable accommodation of disabled applicants and employees, but few have a deep understanding of the crucial role that essential job functions play in that analysis.
Additionally, when and how to engage in the interactive process under the ADA is critical but can be tricky to execute in a legally defensible way. This course will help you understand employers' legal obligations under the ADA and navigate around common pitfalls that often lead to expensive discrimination and failure-to-accommodate claims.
