Take it to the Limit

The Extent of an Employer's Duty to Reasonably Accommodate Under the Americans With Disabilities Act (and in the time of Covid-19)

An Employment Law CLE Webinar

Thursday, September 24, 2020

Noon - 1 pm CDT

(1 hour of General credit)

Description:

In the 30 years since the passage of the ADA, courts gradually have shed light on the very fact-intensive

issue of an employer’s requirement to provide “reasonable accommodation” to an employee or

applicant with a disability. This session will look at the various forms of accommodation that employers

are legally required to consider, from leave to transfer to physical modifications. Accommodations

related to COVID-19 also will be addressed in this session.
