Reasonable accommodations play a critical role in ensuring inclusion of people with disabilities in the workplace. A well-crafted accommodations program can also help attract job applicants with disabilities, as well as retain workers who may acquire disabilities due to injury or illness. This webinar, hosted by the Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN), will explore best practices organizations can use to develop, implement and evaluate effective and accountable accommodations programs. Participants will also learn about resources that can help strengthen existing accommodations policies and procedures. Anyone involved in their company’s reasonable accommodations process, including human resources and diversity and inclusion staff members, is encouraged to participate.
