Jamila Brinson to Present on Work From Home or Telework Requests at HR Houston’s Educational Program

May 1, 2023 | Speaking Engagements

Jackson Walker partner Jamila M. Brinson will serve as the guest speaker at HR Houston’s Far West “HR in Your Neighborhood” Meeting on Thursday, May 4, 2023.

The presentation will focus on employers’ legal obligations around allowing work from home or telework requests as a reasonable accommodation. Jamila will discuss:

  • Basic background on The Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended, how the Act defines a reasonable accommodation, and when an employer must provide one; and
  • The legal parameters employers should consider when faced with an employee’s request to work from home as a reasonable accommodation, and the potential impact such request may have on the employer’s work environment.
