Under the ADA, an employee must be able to perform the essential functions of a job with or without reasonable accommodation.  But just what are essential functions?  Are the functions what you would like in an ideal world or are they truly essential?


  • Using job descriptions to identify essential functions of a job    
  • Real case scenarios where employers went wrong by reassigning essential functions    
  • Can something that doesn’t happen often be an essential function?    
  • Reasonable accommodations and essential functions    
  • Working with your worker’s compensation adjuster when an employee temporarily cannot perform essential functions
