The Trilogy WEBINAR Series:
Navigating The Interactive Process

The TRILOGY WEBINAR Series is designed to educate and inform employers about best practices for employee accommodation, the benefits of early intervention, and managing the interactive process.


Today’s reasonable accommodation process has grown in complexity, going well beyond the ADA’s original 1990 intent and its amendments in 2008.  Oftentimes, employers, employees and their legal representatives find themselves in a quagmire of different laws that potentially apply.  So, what does “readily achievable” and “effective” really mean?  Learn the difference between “quick fixes” and those requiring more time and intervention.  Recognize that most accommodations are less than $500 (sometimes even less than $100), an investment well worth it when it means keeping employees at work safely and mitigating the potential for litigation.

  • What are readily achievable and effective accommodations? Do we have to provide the “cadillac” when a “volkswagen” will do?
  • How do you make them work for you without creating an undue hardship?
  • How can temporary accommodations work for you, the employer, as well as the employee?
  • What resources are available for guidance on “reasonable accommodations?”
  • What is the employee’s responsibility when it comes to accommodation? What is the employer’s responsibility?

Explore the evolution of the accommodation process and how to help employees "BE at work, STAY at work, and PERFORM the work!”


Far too often, employers wait until that P&S report from Workers’ Comp finally arrives from the claims administrator to start the interactive process (TIP). Waiting can be a costly venture for both ERs and EEs! What’s Early Intervention look like? How can employers and employees benefit? How do you set up an early intervention program?

  • What is the impact of injury, illness or disability?
  • What is an early intervention program?
  • What can you gain and how does it work?
  • Who’s involved and how do we get started…


Questions abound about employers' obligations for the interactive process when employees experience medical conditions that impact their ability to be at work, stay at work, and perform the work. A myriad of laws exist at both the State and Federal Levels. Missteps are sure to increase liability! This WEBINAR looks at when and how to do it right!

The Interactive Process (TIP) serves as a vehicle to stay above board when employers are faced with employee with medical conditions, both work- and non-work-related illnesses, injuries, and disabilities.  Many simply don’t know how to do it, when to initiate it, much less how to manage it.  And, unfortunately, many legal professionals and claims examiners are ill-equipped to give good guidance.

  • What is the interactive process?
  • What are best practices?
  • Who should be involved?
  • What should be documented?
  • What does the process look like?

Participants receive a Certificate of Completion upon conclusion of each program.  CEUs pending via SHRM and other relevant organizations.
