The Interactive Process in Action

Managing your workforce when employees need an accommodation or are absent for work-related injuries can be a challenge. This seminar will assist you in how to effectively engage in the interactive process and to recognize potential issues and concerns before they become litigation nightmares.

Attendees will learn the following key points:

  • When is the interactive process triggered;
  • How to properly document the process;
  • How to handle attendance concerns that may be related to an employee’s disability;
  • Overall best practices for engaging in the interactive process; and
  • Effective practices for preventing discrimination claims
