This is a free webinar. Registration is required for participation. 

COVID-19 has led to an increase in requests for workplace reasonable accommodation under the ADA on campuses nationwide. For some COVID-19-related requests, however, there is little precedent to guide decision-making. Now more than ever, institution leaders must find the balance between mitigating risk and meeting their essential business needs.

In this webinar, Rae T. Vann, shareholder at Carlton Fields, will explore how to successfully navigate key challenges that higher ed HR professionals may encounter as they make decisions about accommodation requests. Among the topics to be covered are:

  • A refresher regarding what constitutes an ADA reasonable accommodation
  • Managing COVID-19-related accommodation requests
  • Maintaining confidentiality
  • Determining “undue hardship” and “direct threat” in the COVID-19 context
  • Communicating with empathy and other best practices
