As you and your agency continue to address reasonable accommodation requests during the ongoing pandemic, you must also prepare for accommodating employees when they can return to the workplace. Get guidance to do both in accordance with the law from Kendra Duckworth Shock, a federal Disability Program Manager with 30 years of experience, as she dissects the three most challenging accommodations.
You'll take away the knowledge to confidently determine when leave, telework and reassignment must be granted and when they can be denied, plus gain best practices to:
- Identify a job's “essential functions” to determine an effective accommodation
- Support a determination that a requested accommodation is an undue hardship
- Frame appropriate requests for medical documentation
- Take proper next steps when your agency can't provide the exact accommodation requested
- Apply lessons learned from recent case law to avoid compliance missteps
Plus, you'll get specific guidance to help you handle each type of accommodation request, such as how to: determine when part-time telework may be required; address performance during telework; respond to leave requests when the employee has exhausted leave balances; search for a vacant position to implement a reassignment; offer reassignment as an alternative to telework; and more.
