Promotion or bust – How far must employers’ ADA accommodation efforts go?
Abstract: How far should employers go to accommodate disabled employees? This article discusses a case where the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals found that employers don’t have to promote disabled employees to positions they wouldn’t otherwise qualify for. Also, the court said, employees have a duty to work with their employers to find a reasonable accommodation. Brown v. Milwaukee Board of School Directors, No. 16-1971, May 4, 2017 (7th Cir.)
