June 9, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET: Personal Use or Reasonable Accommodation
This is a free webinar offered through the Job Accommodation Network (JAN). JAN provides free training and technical assistance on workplace accommodations and the employment provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
From the Job Accommodation Network (JAN): Many employers understand it’s not their responsibility to furnish personal use items, those items needed both on and off the job, as a form of reasonable accommodation. But are there times a personal use item may evolve into a work-related item or accommodation? Perhaps. What about if an employee chooses not to use personal use items, do employers still have to consider reasonable accommodations? Perhaps. Join JAN Motor Consultants as they go over some common and not so common issues when deciphering between what is considered a personal use item and what is considered a reasonable accommodation in this JAN training.
