DEALING WITH REASONABLE ACCOMMODATION: WHAT TO DO WHEN AN EMPLOYEE NEEDS OR REQUESTS AN ACCOMMODATION




March 20 & 21, 2019


The Drummond Woodsum Labor and Employment Group invites you to its quarterly complimentary Human Resources get-together.  This program will discuss how to identify and handle either explicit or implicit requests for accommodations in the workplace; the interactive process; when to ask for medical documentation; and when, what, and how to document the request and employer response.  We will also discuss some difficult - but increasingly more frequent - accommodation requests, including those relative to mental health issues and chemical/fragrance sensitivities.

Topics will include:

  • Requesting fitness for duty and other medical documentation
  • How to handle conflicting medical information
  • What to do when you doubt the medical information received
  • Unique challenges of addressing/accommodating mental health disabilities
  • Employer obligations and considerations when accommodating fragrance sensitivity in the workplace
  • What to do when the requested accommodation interferes with job duties
  • How to address discipline and performance issues with an employee who is seeking accommodation

We usually have a full house, so the earlier you register, the better.  We look forward to seeing you.

 

For your convenience we are offering this program in Maine and New Hampshire.
