ourts Clarify Employers’ Obligations Under the Americans with Disabilities Act: Recent Updates

For decades, the ADA has remained at the top of the list of human resources’ headaches. The statute includes both a non-discrimination provision and an obligation for employers to engage in an interactive process to determine if a reasonable accommodation exists to allow a disabled employee to perform his or her essential job functions. Common issues are whether an employee is “disabled,” what triggers the interactive process, and what constitutes a “reasonable accommodation.” In recent years, courts across the country have issued decisions that provide increased clarity about employers’ obligations under this statute.

Please join attorney Janet Hendrick, a partner at Phillips Murrah, as she discusses recent important ADA decisions in plain English.
