The ADA can be complicated and legalistic for HR, but it becomes even more so when your employees with disabilities request assistive technology as a reasonable accommodation. What are your obligations to provide such assistive technology accommodations? What are some of the many different types of assistive technology accommodations that exist that you should know about? What does the interactive process consist of when determining whether you can provide assistive technology or whether to do so would be an undue burden? This webinar will help you better understand how to navigate your obligations to provide reasonable accommodations and all the many types of assistive technologies that exist that you may need to provide in the workplace. It will also provide you with best strategies for ensuring that employees are successful in the workplace by being provided with the accommodations that they require.

Please join legal expert Melissa Fleischer, Esq. as she provides an in-depth, step-by-step analysis of how to ensure compliance with the ADA and provide assistive technology as a reasonable accommodation in the workplace.
