Key Issues in Accommodating Disabilities in the Workplace 2024

Product ID: CA3636R4
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Endorsed by the Labor & Employment Law Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin

All about accommodations 

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Wisconsin Fair Employment Act (WFEA) require employers to provide reasonable accommodations for workers with known disabilities. But even sophisticated employers and trained supervisors may find it challenging to determine when an employee is requesting a workplace accommodation. Lawyers advising employers and employees need to understand exactly what the ADA and WFEA require when it comes to reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities. 

At Key Issues in Accommodating Disabilities in the Workplace, Storm Larson and Jennifer S. Mirus will provide guidance on a recent Wisconsin Court of Appeals decision on reasonable accommodations under the ADA and WFEA. Read More ↓
