In this presentation, a Job Accommodation Network (JAN) consultant with over 20 years of experience in workplace accommodations will share her knowledge about the interactive accommodation process and the role that employers, employees and healthcare professionals play in that process. Problem areas will be identified and addressed at each step, and real-life accommodation situations will be provided to illustrate how these problem areas can be overcome.

Best practice tips will be provided throughout.
