The law governing discrimination and accommodation for disabled employees is continually evolving. This CALPELRALearn program provides the most up-to-date information regarding disability discrimination and the requirements for accommodating disabled employees under the FEHA and ADA as amended by the ADAAA, including:
- When are employees entitled to disability accommodations under state and federal law?
- When and how can an employer require a fitness-for-duty examination, and how should an employer prepare an effective job function analysis?
- What are the specific steps required by the interactive process?
- How do you determine which accommodations are reasonable and which constitute undue hardships?
- What documentation of the interactive process should be created?
Participants receive concrete, real-world examples of engaging in the interactive process to provide required accommodations without excessive expense.
Because disability accommodation often involves administering leaves of absence, this CALPELRALearn program also addresses the intersection of leaves of absence policies with state and federal law, including law regarding family care and medical leaves, pregnancy disability leaves, military and military family leaves, and workers' compensation leaves, offering practical suggestions and best practices.
To help your agency implement reasonable accommodation and leaves of absence, this CALPELRALearn program will provide extensive and practical written materials.
