A good business practice
You might want to consider performing a self audit before making another employment decision, such as hiring, promoting, or firing. Have you provided a reasonable accommodation, if needed? Did you make your decision by having a discussion with the applicant and/or employee (otherwise known as the “interactive process”)? Did you document your decision? Is this information kept strictly confidential and separate from the employee’s personnel file? Performing self audits of your company’s employment practices is a good business practice. It helps you reduce potential employment barriers. It also helps you provide an equal opportunity for your applicants and employees with disabilities.
