Prepare for the ADA Long Haul: Disability Accommodation Is Not a One-Time Event

August 19, 2012
Source: Business Management Daily

Employers that consider the interactive process as a one-time thing may end up in court.

Other disabilities change; employees sometimes need accommodations, sometimes they do not. Accommodations themselves may need to adapt as new medical treatments or workplace technologies emerge.
