    This presentation will seek to answer the following relevant workplace questions regarding leave as a reasonable accommodation:

    1. How does the EEOC view Employer-Provided Leave and the ADA?
    2. How is leave treated differently under the ADA and FMLA?
    3. Is indefinite leave a reasonable accommodation?
    4. Is attendance an essential function?
    5. Is telecommuting required under the ADA as a reasonable accommodation?


    Laura Wulf is currently an Assistant Attorney General in the Labor and Personnel Division in the Washington State Office of the Attorney General.  Laura has developed an expertise in the area of reasonable accommodation since she began doing employment law in 2000.  Additionally, from 2012-2015 she served as the Assistant Human Resources Director at the Department of Social and Health Services. She supervised the 4 member reasonable accommodation unit which managed an average workload of 300 reasonable accommodation cases per month.  She served as a manager in the AGO from 2005-12.  She started her career doing civil commitment hearings at Western State Hospital which helped her to develop a strong commitment to helping those who face the challenge of managing disabilities in their daily lives.
