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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-813-7260 to speak with one of our #EJF experts.
