Navigating the legal issues that arise for employees with disabilities can be challenging. It is even more challenging in the world of COVID-19, where many employees may be fearful of returning to work because of their health conditions or for those in their household. This webinar will review the relevant laws and legal requirements concerning the accommodations process for disabled employees, and how the School should respond to employees who raise concerns about returning to work because of Covid-19 and who may want to continue to work remotely. The webinar will also discuss the ability of employers to require medical testing for COVID-19 and best practices for conducting the interactive process, including the necessary steps of the interactive process, documenting the interactive process, and determining whether to grant or deny an accommodation. It also addresses the authority of a school to require a current employee to undergo medical and/or psychological examinations for purposes of determining the employee’s “fitness for duty.”

Who Should Attend? Heads of School, CFOs/Business Officers, Department Heads and Deans, Human Resources Directors and Counselors
