This Webcast will provide you with an in-depth look at a step-by-step guide used to process every request for reasonable accommodation. Many of the steps are quick and easy but must be considered with each request. In most instances when there is a breakdown in the accommodation process it is because either the management official or the employee has skipped a step. Learn all of the steps and why each is so important as well as what the tracking requirements of EEOC include.
