While requests for workplace accommodations have always been prevalent, they are even more prevalent in the past 18 months. There are no magic words an employee needs to use to request an accommodation, which means businesses commonly subject themselves to significant liability when they have supervisory staff who are not trained to recognize and process requests for accommodations.

This presentation will give you a broad overview of recognizing and responding to workplace accommodation requests by answering the following questions:

  • How do I recognize an accommodation request?
  • Once a request is received, what are my duties as a business owner/human resources professional?
  • How do we determine what accommodations are appropriate?
  • What are the most common mistakes made in responding to accommodation requests?
  • Setting aside the legal jargon, how does this process actually play out in my workplace?
  • What other practical steps can we take to handle requests and accommodations?
  • Best practices for handling if original accommodation does not indicate an anticipated duration?
