For all intents and purposes, the pandemic is over, yet it continues to pose a significant challenge to federal agencies, particularly in the area of reasonable accommodation. Different variations of COVID are still floating around. COVID continues to keep many people from returning to the physical workplace. And the long-term impacts of COVID are now being felt.
Join FELTG Instructor and Attorney at Law Katherine Atkinson for this two-hour class to ensure you are prepared for this new world of reasonable accommodation.
Employee needs, physical conditions, and medication adjustments evolve over extended periods. Once successful accommodations may no longer be effective. You must have a process in place to properly re-evaluate the effectiveness of employees’ accommodations.
Get ready, you’re going to hear a lot about the word “telework” in these accommodation discussions. After all, employees successfully worked remotely for almost two years, so why wouldn’t it be a viable and effective accommodation? Are you prepared to make the right determination on a request to telework as an accommodation?
New conditions have emerged over the last couple of years, and you should be ready to provide reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with long haul COVID, breathing challenges, and mental health conditions.
Attendees will learn how to:
- Effectively revisit existing accommodations.
- Use the interactive process to find an effective reasonable accommodation.
- Determine if telework is an effective accommodation.
