The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA/ADAAA) How to Manage Accommodation Requests

Course Code:  WTD076

Course Name:  The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADAAA) How to Manage Accommodation Requests

Prerequisite:  None

Department:  Human Resources

Length of Session:  2 Hours

Audience:  Supervisors, Manager, and HR Liaisons

Session Description: The University is committed to creating an inclusive workplace environment for individual with disabilities.  A part of that commitment under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act (ADA/ADAAA) for supervisors is to initiate an “interactive process” discussion when an applicant or employee requests reasonable accommodations or become aware of the possible need for an accommodation.  

Session Objectives:  As a result of this session, participants will:

  • Describe the interplay between essential functions, medical restrictions, and reasonable accommodation under ADA/ADAAA, and
  • Identify reasonable accommodation requests and when it is appropriate to initiate an interactive discussion for such requests.
