Scent-sational Legal Risks: How to Master Odor and Allergy ADA Accommodations

Live Webinar: Wednesday, August 21, 2019

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to recognize and address allergies and fragrance sensitivity in the workplace and comply with reasonable accommodation obligations under the ADA.


 

Accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are often fairly straightforward. But what happens when an employee is sensitive to fragrances and odors? This can be a qualifying condition, but one that is extremely tricky to accommodate in a standard workplace setting filled with other employees and scents of all kinds.

Join us on August 21 for answers to tough questions about your responsibility to accommodate employees’ odor, fragrance, and allergy sensitivities. Our presenter, a skilled labor and employment attorney, will address how the ADA applies to requests for accommodation around fragrance allergies and sensitivities, and how the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has looked at policy development, as well as other forms of accommodation.

We’ll cover how to address the challenges and complexities that can come with making accommodations for employees with allergies or sensitivities to fragrance.

Plus, you’ll learn:

  • Common job-related issues for employees with allergies and fragrance sensitivity
  • How EEOC regulations and the ADA apply to the issue of accommodating odor, fragrance, and allergy sensitivities in the workplace
  • Accommodation approaches to consider for employees with allergies and fragrance sensitivity
  • How to engage in the interactive process to appropriately address an ADA accommodation request
  • And more!

Register now for this webinar featuring strategies for exploring various accommodation options and review how to utilize an interactive process to work toward the implementation of effective accommodation solutions!
