The Americans with Disabilities Act requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations to enable qualified individuals with a disability to perform the essential functions of a job. What qualifies as a disability? What is a “reasonable accommodation”? And, what is interactive dialogue? We’ll answer all of these questions and more as we explore the ADA and PFML. You’ll learn what questions you can and cannot ask, what documentation to keep, and how to respond to an employee when an accommodation cannot be provided.
