Employer Best Practices in ADA Accommodations.”
“Employers need to be smart and informed to protect their employees, reputations and bottom-lines from the serious consequences of failing to comply with the law.”
“ADA compliance affects how employers manage employee absence,” notes Heather Luiz, director of product management at Liberty Mutual’s Group Benefits operation. “Employers need to be smart and informed to protect their employees, reputations and bottom-lines from the serious consequences of failing to comply with the law.”
