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?
- What is a “reasonable accommodation” under the ADA?
- How do you recognize a request for a reasonable accommodation?
- How do you engage in the interactive process to identify potential accommodations?
- How do you use medical documentation to decide whether an accommodation is required, and if so, what accommodation to provide?
- When is an employer not required to provide a reasonable accommodation?
Human resources professionals, supervisors, and managers in need of an introduction to or basic refresher on the ADA. We also offer an advanced class, Managing the Ill or Injured Worker under the ADA, FMLA, and Workers’ Compensation, which takes an in-depth analysis of the interplay between the ADA, FMLA, and Workers’ Compensation.
