When taking a performance-based action under Chapter 43, you need to provide an opportunity for the employee to improve. Under Chapter 75 you can expedite the discipline, but a higher standard of proof applies. So how do you know which is the better path to take in a particular situation?

Get all the guidance you need from Ricardo Pitts-Wiley, an experienced attorney and trainer on taking adverse actions at the MSPB. He’ll guide you through the considerations needed to make the right choice, explaining in plain language the pros and cons of each chapter and how to determine which to take. You’ll also learn the requirements your agency must meet with both options and best practices for putting together your case to avoid being overturned on appeal.

Plus, you’ll gain strategies to:

  • Pinpoint when an individualized disability assessment is necessary and how to conduct it
  • Ensure medical information is not improperly requested or disclosed
  • Approach and process requests for telework as a reasonable accommodation
  • Proceed if your agency experiences legitimate difficulties in providing long-term accommodation and determine when you must provide interim accommodation
  • Meet your agency’s ongoing obligation to monitor accommodation effectiveness
  • And more

Because disability accommodation is such a complex issue — with tricky scenarios and evolving case law — there is always more to learn. And that’s especially true now with high numbers of federal employees seeking reasonable accommodation for today’s varied work environments and the EEOC’s increasing findings of disability discrimination based on agency missteps.

Ensure your agency’s processing of reasonable accommodation requests is comprehensive, timely and compliant with current EEOC case law. Noted federal employment law expert Maxanne Witkin will use current EEOC decisions to show you where agencies went wrong — giving you a solid understanding of the EEOC’s rationale and guidance to apply it effectively to your employees’ situations.

You’ll learn how to identify and properly address a request for reasonable accommodation. Plus, with specific examples drawn from EEOC case law, you’ll gain best practices to:

  • Distinguish between the nuances of Chapter 75 and Chapter 43 actions against poor performers
  • Recognize the proper charge to take based on the particular circumstances
  • Determine whether providing an opportunity to improve performance is a good course of action
  • Discuss options with a supervisor before moving too quickly
  • And more
