Employers can find themselves on the wrong side of a claim when mental health issues arise in the workplace and those issues are not addressed or treated appropriately. Recognizing, addressing and accommodating an employee’s needs can often be a difficult task, but signals during employee evaluations, employees not “fitting” in, casual talk in the break room, or apparent job “burn-out” may require attention. Areas of focus include:
- Myths and stereotypes about mental disabilities
- Recognizing barriers to employment
- Signals that often go unrecognized that indicate a disability
- Checklist approach to the interactive and reasonable accommodation process
- Identifying possible accommodations
- Exceptions to the reasonable accommodation requirement
Join us for this complimentary informative session to unravel the many facets of the interactive process and reasonable accommodation. Through the use of case examples depicting everyday workplace scenarios, we will offer a tangible process to identify and address accommodation needs in an effort to insulate your organization from disability discrimination claims.
