Complying With ADA Accommodation Requests

Learn how to identify qualified disabilities, handle accommodation requests, and how to stay compliant when requests are unreasonable.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to handling reasonable accommodation requests. That is the beauty - and the challenge - of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This challenge, however, can leave even the savviest of HR professionals uncertain and hesitant when it comes to complying with the ADA's accommodations requirements. Uncertainty or inaction can put your company at risk. This content covers the who, what, when, where, why, and how of the ADA. You will learn how first to recognize a request and then how to analyze and make a determination that complies with the law. This information is important for employers to gain the critical knowledge needed to address this key component of the equal employment opportunity mandate.
