Following an “interactive process” under the ADA


SKU: ELBnd132. Category: .


Abstract: When a warehouse worker with vision problems was ultimately terminated, he filed a charge with the district court, alleging that the company had unlawfully discriminated against him by failing to provide a “reasonable accommodation” for his disability, resulting in his discharge in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Under ADA regulations, an employer should engage in an interactive “accommodation discovery” process when an employee discloses a disability and expresses a desire for an accommodation. The company had not done so — but neither had the employee suggested an accommodation. As this article explains, that determined the case’s outcome. Wilson v. Dollar General Corp., No. 12-1573, May 17, 2013 (4th Cir.)
