Course Description

The current presentation will involve small group discussion and interaction on the issue(s) surrounding a job’s “Essential Functions.” Essential functions are the basic job duties that an employee must be able to perform, with or without reasonable accommodation. We will engage the audience in a conversation on factors to consider in determining if a job function is essential as well as the consequences associated with making accommodations. Reasonable accommodation is any change or adjustment to a job or work environment that permits a qualified applicant or employee with a disability to perform the essential functions of a job. We will conclude with a discussion on who may be impacted by these decisions.
