Session Description:

Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act guarantees reasonable accommodation to ensure equality in the workplace. Often, employees, employers, and/or professionals are unsure of their respective roles in disability disclosure and reasonable accommodation.

Often, when employers hear the word “disability” they become concerned with cost and legal liability. Frequently, employers do not understand that they also have rights under ADA. Employees often do not know that they have responsibilities in disclosing a disability and the need for accommodation.

This presentation will discuss disclosure and reasonable accommodation. We will address some of these questions.

• What is disclosure?

• Are people obligated to disclose a disability?

• When is the “right time” to disclose a need for accommodation to an employer?

• What are the concerns people have when they disclose a disability?

• What is a reasonable accommodation?

• When is an accommodation unreasonable?”

• How does an employee request accommodation?

• What is the role of the employment specialist in disclosure and reasonable accommodation?

• What can be done to ensure that the process is respectful of the employee with a disability?

• What are the responsibilities of the employer?
