Description
In November 2015, the EEOC announced its intention to strengthen enforcement of the ADA. Coupled with a greatly expanded scope of disability resulting from the ADA Amendments Act, employers face an increase in employee requests for disability-based accommodations. Because some employers have denied requests for accommodations-such as telecommuting arrangements, predictable work shifts and reassignment-there has been an increase in litigation and EEOC enforcement action, and courts are increasingly ruling in favor of employees.

Objectives Of The Presentation
  • How are the EEOC and courts addressing disputes concerning telecommuting as a reasonable accommodation under the ADA?
  • How should an employer respond to an employee's request for a reasonable accommodation such as a transfer or telecommuting arrangement?
  • What information should an employer gather in determining how to respond to a request for as a reasonable accommodation under the ADA?
  • What are some effective strategies for employers defending employee suits challenging denials of requests for reasonable accommodations?
  • Under what conditions might a delay in implementing an accommodation constitute a constructive discharge?
