The Reason you Interactive Processes are Painful and How to Fix This!
12/13/23 at 9:00 AM to 12/13/23 at 10:30 AM
Bay Cities Joint Powers Insurance Authority (BCJPIA) is sponsoring a regional training workshop on Interactive Processes. This workshop is intended for anyone involved in the Interactive Process, Risk Managers, Human Resources, Supervisors, and Managers.
It’s not uncommon for discussions between employees and employers to get emotionally charged when it comes to the topic of their disability and reasonable accommodations. Fact collecting will be by far the most important step in your ADA/FEHA interactive processes. Simply put, good data = good decisions.
While collecting data and having parties agree on essential functions is vital, every human resource and risk manager can tell you getting clear medical information from health care providers is more difficult. From vague medical reports to accommodation recommendations and unclear restrictions such as “no heavy lifting or prolonged standing,” Rachel will walk attendees through how clear medical data can save your organization in time and money.
Leave understanding how to write better medical questionnaires to get the information you need to make sound reasonable accommodation decisions.
