Moving Beyond Reactive Reasonable Accommodations to a Proactive Workplace
Daniel Duff and Patricia Pryor, Jackson Lewis P.C.
Covered federal contractors are required to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified employees to assist them in performing the essential functions of their jobs. Often employers take a purely reactive approach to reasonable accommodations, offering little in the way of assistance to employees unless the employee specifically asks for an accommodation. This interactive program will explore how workplace wellness programs can transform this "we'll cross that bridge if we get there" environment by offering opportunities for employees to confidentially seek assistance through effectively structured wellness programs.
