Leave and Reassignment as Reasonable Accommodations Under the ADA: Understanding What Is \Reasonable\""

Among the possible accommodations that an employer may be required to consider to allow disabled employees to perform their jobs are leaves of absence and reassignment. But how much leave is “reasonable”? Is there a point at which a request for accommodation turns into a request for indefinite leave? And how far must an employer go when considering possible positions for reassignment of a disabled employee? All of these decisions depend on having a solid understanding of the best practices for engaging in the interactive process required by the ADA and managing employee leave, including coordination of leave under the FMLA and ADA. Employers should understand potential risks inherent in the interactive process when determining whether a reasonable accommodation is possible, and also how to respond to requests for leave and/or reassignment. Compliance requires clearly stated company policies relating to accommodation requests as well as knowledge of the boundaries of reasonableness of employee requests. Please join Janet Hendrick, attorney at law, as she clarifies the murky waters of leave and reassignment as reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
