When an employer requests medical documentation pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), there is more to consider than just checking boxes off a list. Offering flexibility in the process by accepting alternative forms of medical information and documentation and focusing on functional limitations to support accommodation requests can help bridge the gap between what is technically allowable under the ADA and meeting the needs of employees with disabilities. This JAN training will include information about what the ADA requires with respect to medical inquiries, common scenarios when employers request medical documentation, and beyond compliance strategies for employers to consider when navigating the ADA accommodation process.
