Handling employees who have medical conditions that restrict their ability to do their job - this is one of the most difficult and important topics employers face today.
The Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act are two laws greatly impacting this issue. But these acts, and all of their intricacies, can be hard to manage in your workplace.
What do these laws mean for you as an employer? Who is protected/eligible under each? What constitutes a qualified individual? What does the interactive process for reasonable accommodation include? What documentation is recommended related to these matters? Is there any training you should conduct with supervisors to ensure compliance? What information must the employee provide?
