When is enough ... enough?

It's a question that troubles most employers when dealing with accommodations. At what point have you done enough to offer extra leave, revised job tasks, changes to workstations or modified schedules? When must you say "yes" to such accommodations, when can you say "no" and when is it legal to say goodbye? And what about employees who are hesitant to return to the post-pandemic workplace? (Terminating workers with medical or mental health issues is one of the riskiest legal moves.)

Get the legal details to navigate that dangerous legal line at Accommodate or Terminate. This 60-minute webinar (plus 15 minutes for Q&A time) covers all your compliance obligations under the ADA, FMLA and other related laws.

Employment lawyer Anniken Davenport will provide you with a legal roadmap to work through one of the toughest situations, so you can confidently know when it's time to accommodate, and when it's time to terminate.What You'll Learn:Agenda for Accommodate or Terminate:

  • Employer do's and don'ts. Which accommodations are required by you under the ADA, FMLA and other employee-protection laws.

  • When is it time to terminate? What to do when accommodations aren't working, including when you can legally say "no" or terminate the worker.

  • FMLA vs. ADA. Know the difference between FMLA leave for health issues and reasonable accommodations under the ADA. They sometimes overlap-and sometimes don't.

  • Essential job functions. See exactly what your job descriptions must say about "essential" and non-essential functions.

  • Step-by-step interactive process. Find out exactly what you must do (and document) when an employee requests an accommodation.

  • When you must accommodate workers who want to stay remote. Some may not want to return to the post-pandemic workplace. When must you allow WFH, and when can you draw a hard line?

  • How to accommodate "long haul" COVID claims. The ADA and FMLA may require extra leave or a revised schedule. When can you ask for more proof-or say "no"?

  • How to accommodate vaccine/mask differences. Know when employees can legally cite disability or religion for refusing company vaccine mandates-and how you must accommodate.

  • Accommodation resources. Discover resources for finding the best possible accommodation for your organization. (Tip: It doesn't have to be the one the disabled worker prefers.)
