Disability is diverse: it includes many different types of abilities (physical, mental, neurological, learning, etc).  One way CU Boulder works to ensure individuals with disabilities and pregnant employees are supported in the workplace is through reasonable accommodations.  November’s Monthly Ethics & Compliance Education Series will provide you with the tools to recognize and respond to employee requests for workplace accommodations.  The Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance ADA Compliance Unit will be reviewing what workplace accommodations are and why they are important through a case study based discussion.  Danielle Yatrakis, Director of ADA Compliance & ADA Coordinator and Meredith Smith, Title I and Title II Program Manager, will give this month’s presentation

In this session, participants will learn:

  • The resources the ADA Compliance unit provides.
  • ​The purpose of reasonable workplace accommodations.
  • The skills to recognize when an employee may be requesting an accommodations and how to respond effectively.
  • The process ADA Compliance uses to assess workplace accommodation requests including additional leave as an accommodation.

For information on student academic accommodations, please visit the Office of Disability Services.

Ample time for audience Q&A will be provided and is encouraged throughout the session.
