Courtney George to Speak on "The Disability Dilemma" at the HR Forum & Healthcare Council
Can you define "disability" under employment law?
Are you aware of the many forms a "request" for an accommodation can come in?
Does your definition of what is "reasonable" match the EEOC or the CHRC?
Are you comfortable talking to an employee about their request for an accommodation?
Do you understand what is required before you say "no" to a request?
