Course Description

The third session in FELTG’s annual Reasonable Accommodation webinar series focuses on one of the most commonly requested accommodations for individuals with physical and mental disabilities – telework. It turns out telework may also be one of the most effective accommodations, but it’s not for everybody.

This 60-minute webinar will dive into a discussion on recent and relevant Federal cases – won and lost – involving telework requests as reasonable accommodation. This course will explain the circumstances and that make telework “unique” among reasonable accommodation requests and prepare you to do the appropriate interactive discussion and analysis.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Recognize when an agency can legally deny telework as an accommodation.
  • Determine what to do if telework would be an effective accommodation, but something else would work, too.
  • Identify what the EEOC says about accommodating an employee’s commute.


This program meets the President’s mandate to provide training on diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility in the Federal workplace.
