A Simple Checklist For Handling Reasonable Accommodation Requests

On today’s show, I outline the basics of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and provide a simple checklist for you to follow

When your restaurant managers and leaders don't understand the laws, rules and regulations that impact their teams and business, it can cause major problems (legally and culturally).

In order to ensure that everyone receives equal opportunities in maintaining successful employment, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) puts forth legislation that offers guidance for restaurants and other businesses in providing reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities.

Restaurant owners and managers often have questions surrounding whether an employee is disabled as defined by the ADA, whether the employee can perform the essential functions of the job with accommodation, and if such accommodation would subject the employer to undue hardship.

While this law can be complex and confusing, on today’s show, I outline the basics of this expansive law and provide a simple “checklist” for you to follow too.
