Employment Law for In-House Counsel: How to Engage in the Interactive process and Discipline Employees while Complying with the ADA


Event Description

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations to the known physical or mental limitations of a qualified individual with a disability, unless doing so would impose an undue hardship on business operations. The interactive process is used to determine whether an effective and reasonable accommodation is available for an employee under the ADA.


Join on March 22, at 12pm ET / 9am PT for the next edition of our IHC Deep Dives Series as Lindsay Dischley and Melissa Salimbene of Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC, will discuss an employer’s obligations to engage in the interactive process and provide reasonable accommodations to current employees and job applicants who may need such an accommodation due to a disability.


In this interactive, informative and insightful program, Lindsay and Melissa will walk through each step of the interactive process, including

  • initiating the interactive process,
  • determining if an individual is “qualified,”
  • assessing whether the individual has a “disability” under the law, and
  • evaluating potential accommodations and whether they create an “undue hardship or burden” on the employer.

Lindsay and Melissa will also provide an update on litigation trends and best practices as to how employers can discipline, and even terminate, employees with disabilities without violating applicable law.
