Cutting Edge Disability Accommodation Issues, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association




Summary
Now that most disability cases don’t lose at the coverage stage, courts are finally facing the task of deciding what accommodations are “reasonable,” either “in the run of cases” or if not, at least in an ADA claimant’s “special circumstances.” This session will explore cutting edge accommodation questions such as the vitality of US Airways v. Barnett and the viability of accommodations commonly resisted by employers, including extended unpaid leave, the off-duty use of medical marijuana, working remotely (i.e., outside the office), preference for a job transfer over “better qualified” candidates and co-workers sharing one or more tasks unequally. The panel will also discuss the most common employer arguments against providing accommodation and offer strategies how to resist employer efforts to raise ADA affirmative defenses, including “direct threat” and “undue hardship” defenses.

This course has been approved in CA, OK, VT and IL. Please see your state's MCLE site for more information or to find out if attorneys may earn credit through reciprocity or self-submission.
