HR Competencies

• HR Expertise


The ADA is one of the most challenging laws an HR professional encounters, while at the same time being one of the most common. Understanding the fundamentals of the ADA is therefore a prerequisite to being considered a competent HR professional. This is all the more true with the EEOC making clear by its words and actions (i.e., lawsuits) that the ADA is one of its focuses. This concentrated class will provide attendees with a straight-forward, practical, step-by-step process to recognize, analyze, and handle ADA situations.


  • What qualifies as a “disability” under the ADA
  • How discrimination can occur under the ADA
  • Identifying a “reasonable accommodation”
  • Recognizing  a request for a reasonable accommodation
  • Engaging in the interactive process to identify potential accommodations
  • What is an undue hardship

Who Should Attend

Human resources professionals, supervisors, and managers in need of an introduction to or basic refresher on the ADA
