Disability & Accommodations: Making Due with What You Have

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Work is busy, employees are stressed, deadlines are approaching, and you need everyone performing at their best. But what do we do when an applicant or employee discloses a potential disability? Can we require physicals or fitness for duty exams, and what possible accommodations can or should we make for staff who work directly with children? It may feel like an undue hardship, but is it really? Join us as we explore the answers to these and other pressing disability-related questions.

At the end of this session participants will be able to:
  •  Engage in a more meaningful interactive process to identify and develop options for possible disability accommodations.
  • Distinguish when and how to request medical information from candidates and current employees to use in performance assessments.
