The broad best practices detailed in the white paper include:

- Standardize and document the interactive accommodation process required by the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act in a user-friendly way that will help minimize legal risks resulting from non-compliance

- Track the profitability and cost savings from the implementation of return to work programs
