Disability General



Is telecommuting a reasonable #accommodation for an employee who has a disability?  It could be.  But first, the employer must determine if physical presence is an essential job function (EJF’s).  This issue recently came to light in a case between the #EEOC and Ford Motor.  It is just one of many that are surfacing and ultimately relying on employers having documented #essentialjobfunctions (#EJF’s) within each of their job descriptions.  So how prepared is your company to address such issues?  If today your #jobdescriptions don’t delineate essential and marginal functions, contact #Springboard at info@consultspringboard.com or 973-813-7260 to speak with one of our #EJF experts.
