Bypass ADA Interactive Accommodation Process At Your Peril


Discrimination claims are expensive to defend. If they reach a jury, the results are often unpredictable.

It’s one of the most effective risk and cost containment tool available to employers facing a discrimination lawsuit, and it’s especially important in disability discrimination cases.
