JAN FACT SHeet: Reasonable Accommodation Process-The Interactive Process Fact Sheet

Posted by randee chafkin - On February 27, 2011 (EST)

JAN has recently released two new Fact Sheetsb on The Interactive Process for the Reasonable Acccommodations Process. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the interactive process is not necessarily required under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), but from a legal standpoint, going through the process is a way for employers to show that they are making a good faith effort to comply with the ADA. And from a practical standpoint, it is a way to streamline the accommodation process and help insure that effective accommodations are provided.

JAN Releases Fact Sheets on The Interactive Process: The Federal Sector. The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires the Federal sector to provide effective, reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities. To help determine effective accommodations, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), recommends that agencies use an "interactive process," which simply means that employers and employees with disabilities who request accommodations work together. An effective interactive process is essential to Federal agencies in complying with Executive Order 13548.
