Timely Information and Resources

Ask JAN!

When an employee requests to telework full time as an accommodation, how do we determine whether the job can be performed from home full time?
The temporary telework experience during the pandemic can serve as evidence of whether the employee can satisfactorily perform the job while teleworking, but the determination should be made on a case-by-case basis at the time an employee requests the accommodation. For additional guidance, see questions 4 and 5 in the  Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) resource: Work at Home/Telework as a Reasonable Accommodation.

Consultants' Corner

Once an employer receives a request from an employee to telework because of a medical condition, determine whether it’s an accommodation request related to a disability. JAN offers a flowchart that may help: Telework Accommodation Request Flowchart.
