A HUB Talks Podcast

Date: 30 January 2018
Working Wise

In this episode, we highlight the challenges of accommodating an employee's disability through leaves of absence. The podcast covers the background of the Americans with Disabilities Act, how leave can be a reasonable accommodation, what an employer should request, difficult leave requests (indefinite leave, excessive leave, and intermittent leave), and normal elements of accommodation law, and concludes with a recent case from the Seventh Circuit that may be a roadmap for other courts.
