Instructor

Katherine Atkinson

Course Description

When the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act became effective nearly a decade ago, the law expanded ADA coverage to include more individuals in disability determinations. FELTG Instructor Katherine Atkinson, attorney at law, will take a focused look at three challenging areas in the disability process that have changed in recent years: qualified individuals, essential functions, and undue hardship.

After an overview of the disability accommodation law and analysis, Ms Atkinson will dive into the details, including:

  • How to determine whether an individual is qualified for a particular job
  • How to decide what job functions are essential, and what job functions are marginal or ancillary
  • What factors control an undue hardship determination

This is the third of four webinars in FELTG’s 2021 Navigating Challenges in the EEO Process series.

Series Description

Equal Employment Opportunity claims can be a long and often complicated process, and some challenges are a bit more troublesome than others. It’s those topics we are tackling during this four-part webinar series. Why should know the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Babb v. Wilkie? What are steps you can take to avoid an age discrimination claim? What’s the difference between serious health condition and an ADA disability? And what happens if you confuse the two? How do you determine whether a job task is an essential function? How do you define a “prompt and effective” response to a complaint?

We’ll answer these questions and more over the course of four 60-minute webinars, held the first Thursday of the month. Sessions will be held on Thursdays from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET.

Webinar – Avoiding EEO Mistakes: How Not to Respond to a Complaint
Jun 3 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Download Registration Form

Instructor

Meghan Droste

Course Description

When a complaint is filed with your agency’s EEO office, it’s possible that something very wrong has happened. However, how you respond to that complaint could go a long way toward not only resolviing the complaint, but ensuring that you don’t make matters even worse than they are.

EEOC decisions are littered with reversals of agency’s FADs finding no discrimination. Oftentimes, the EEOC and the agency have a different concept of what makes a corrective action “prompt and effective.” And too often, response to an EEO complaint lead to claims of reprisal – even when it’s found that the original complaint had no standing.

In this 60-minute webinar, Attorney Meghan Droste will identifty all of the pitfalls that lay waiting for agencies who fail to properly respond to an EEO complaint.

This is the final webinar in our four-part series Navigating Challenges in the EEO Process.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Determine what to do when you learn of a discrimination or harassment complaint
  • Avoid liability/strengthen the agency’s affirmative defenses in harassment complaints
  • Avoid creating a retaliation complaint when responding to an EEO complaint
