Through this software training module, disability law experts Gilbert and Hadley discuss federal sector disability law, and give practice tips and techniques for the practitioner to use when representing the agency or a complainant. This session provides the experiences of the presenters in a classroom setting to establish a framework for assessing disability discrimination claims and for developing a strategy to either defend against or pursue those claims through the federal EEO process. Topics covered include: the Americans with Disability Act and the Rehabilitation Act, limitations on agency-conducted medical examinations and inquires, reasonable accommodation as it relates to a qualified disability, understanding the concepts of "major life activity" and "essential job functions," the mandatory "interactive process" for identifying reasonable accommodation, and Supreme Court decisions and their applicability to your clients.
