HR’s obligations to engage in the interactive process when an employee requests a reasonable accommodation under the ADA is perhaps one of the most difficult obligations you may have. The ADA is legalistic and understanding what you may and may not do and request during the interactive process and your confidentiality obligations is tricky. Understanding the many types of reasonable accommodations that an employee may request and how to properly respond to ensure legal compliance with the ADA is essential to avoid potential legal liability. Also, properly documenting you are having engaged in the interactive process and understanding how to obtain the proper medical documentation to substantiate the need for the “reasonable accommodation” is a must.
