    Product Description

    Counsel for employers and employees with disabilities agree that the interactive process is a critically important legal obligation their clients must navigate. At the same time, sometimes attorneys and their clients are not completely sure of how to best initiate, implement, and conclude this process. This new program provides an overview of the relevant principles of reasonable accommodation law and explains the best ways to use the informal interactive process. Veteran employment attorneys also explain how to avoid potential errors that could weaken or forfeit your client’s claims or defenses. Watch the faculty bring the law to life via lively, interactive role plays and constructive critique of a mock interactive process. Bring your questions!
