Webinar: How to handle ADA accommodations in the workplace


ADA and religious accommodations are not anything new to the savvy HR professional. Even though we are through the pandemic, we’ve seen an uptick in ADA and religious accommodation requests. Employers must be vigilant to recognize they must provide reasonable accommodations to employees who may have a medical disability or a sincerely held religious belief that interferes with the ability to perform the essential functions of their job.

The accommodation process is extremely complicated, and the legal guidelines are very broad. This can put employers at risk as many are generally unfamiliar with how to administer the process correctly.  This session will discuss the ADA and religious accommodation process, including best practices and recognizing red flags.

After completing this course, the learner will:

  • Review the EEOC guidelines for reasonable accommodations under the ADA and religious exemption arena
  • Learn what qualifies an employee to receive an ADA or religious accommodation
  • Understand the foundational elements of the ADA and the religious accommodation process
  • Learn how the ADA and FMLA, and other state leave laws intersect
  • How to recognize red flags or fraudulent requests
  • Review real-world examples of ADA and religious accommodations situations and the recommended response to those
