    A streamlined interactive process should not be complicated. In the aftermath of broadscale nationwide shutdowns, however, employers and HR professionals struggle to apply traditional processes to vastly expanded expectations for telework allowances.  In an interactive format, we will apply practical processes to support HR professionals in simplifying a legally defensible accommodations process, particularly in the face of increasing telework accommodations requests.

    Learning Objectives:

    • An efficient, effective step-by-step process for all accommodations requests, including telework accommodations.
    • Strategies to manage legal risk without compromising the essential functions of employees’ positions or your workplace culture.
    • Best practices to prevent and minimize legal risk.
