Information will be provided on the processes and procedures used at Colorado State University for determining whether an employee is an individual with a disability and if so, the interactive process to provide reasonable accommodations.

The goal of this session is to provide supervisors with a basic understanding of the area of disabilities in employment and their role and responsibilities as a supervisor when working with employees who may be eligible for reasonable accommodations in order to be able to perform the essential functions of their job.

Description:
PDQ’s are descriptions of individual positions within the State of Colorado Classified system. These documents define individual job duties and responsibilities, address the four factors used to classify positions (decision making, complexity, purpose of contact and line/staff authority) and are used by supervisors to develop performance plans. Get helpful tips in the revision of a PDQ, gain a better understanding of what job evaluation is, why we do it, and when it is appropriate to submit these documents for review. Learn what the sections in a PDQ really mean and how they all come together. This workshop can be a very valuable piece of your HR toolkit and help you better support your departments and teams.
Goals and Target Audience:
This workshop is designed for employees, supervisors, human resources contacts, and appointing authorities responsible for completing and/or approving PDQ documents.
