“How Employers Can Navigate Disability-Related Misconduct and the Interactive Process” by Dena Calo and Joshua Knapp in Thompson’s Leave & Disability Coordination Newsletter.
October 31, 2013
Partner Dena B. Calo and Associate Joshua E. Knapp have published an article on How Employers Can Navigate Disability in Thompson’s Leave & Disability Coordination newsletter. The piece examines how an employer should approach a situation where a disabled employee engages in behavior that warrants termination. The authors emphasize the importance of an employer receiving notice of the employee’s need for accommodation of the disability. They also underline the need for interactive discussion, in case the employer did receive notice, in order to determine what reasonable accommodation might be necessary to prevent future misconduct.
