Using Undue Hardship as a Defense under the ADA

Duration: 90 minutes

Speaker: Deirdre Kamber Todd, Esq.

SHARE THIS WEBINAR

Webinar Description

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires an employer to make reasonable accommodation to its disabled workers to enable them to do their jobs. However, an employer can claim that an accommodation for an employee will create an undue hardship that prevents the employer from accommodating that employee. The undue hardship defense is often attempted, but often fails because the defense cannot withstand legal challenge. Employment attorney Deirdre Kamber Todd will discuss workable strategies for using the undue hardship defense that will be legal and appropriate for your workplace.
