Prepare for the ADA Long Haul: Disability Accommodation Is Not a One-Time Event
August 19, 2012
Source: Business Management Daily
Employees with disabilities who need reasonable accommodations are entitled to what the ADA calls the interactive reasonable accommodations process. What exactly that means varies by the individual and may change over time.
Employers that consider the interactive process as a one-time thing may end up in court. Here is why: Some disabilities become more serious over time and the accommodation needs of employees may change. 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.
