The reality is, it's often challenging for organizations to devote the level of resources needed to confidently administer ADA accommodation requests. That’s why we offer guidance on complying with ADA laws that can affect employee leave.
The Americans with Disabilities Act can be difficult to administer, however, as part of Guardian Absence SolutionsSM we offer comprehensive ADA services that allow employers to choose the level of support that best meets their needs.
Either way, employees can benefit from a smoother, more supportive claims experience, and employers gain confidence from knowing that their claim and accommodation processes are being expertly handled. Key benefits include:
Guardian obtains documentation, handles the determination of what constitutes a disability, and takes care of the rest. As the employer, your staff only need to perform the interactive process discussion and decide on the accommodation request and implementation.
A self-service portal provides employees and employers with access to etters throughout the process. And you can access self-service employer reports 24/7 to monitor all your ADA requests and activity.
Your employees work with skilled Guardian ADA specialists who ensure their accommodation needs are processed efficiently, empathetically, and within compliance.
