“Injured Employees: Where Workers’ Compensation and the ADA/FEHA Disability Interactive Process Collide”
Injured workers who meet the ADA and FEHA’s definition of an “individual with a disability” enter the disability interactive process, regardless of whether they satisfy criteria for receiving benefits under workers’ compensation or other disability laws. When at the intersection of these processes, each with its own set of rules and laws—sorting through where they overlap and where they don’t—can be frustratingly slow for all parties involved. Rachel Shaw will show you how to get “unstuck” when common roadblocks pop up—and, shed light on opportunities to reduce claim costs and create timeline efficiencies. The session will also explore how you can use Light Duty Agreements, create TTD questionnaires to evaluate if continued leave is reasonable, the value of Essential Function Position Analyses and how to make sure you get what you need from QME and AME providers.
