The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law by George H.W. Bush in July 1990. The Act is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public.
Disability accommodation is an important and visible aspect of ethical business practices. Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act will ensure your organization is operating in an ethical manner.
Non-compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) can prove to be costly for employers. Penalties in excess of hundreds of thousands of dollars for non-compliance put employers at substantial risk. Can your organization afford to be non-compliant?
Understanding the many types of “reasonable accommodations” that an employee may request and how to properly respond to ensure legal compliance with the ADA is essential to avoid potential legal liability. Also, properly documenting your having engaged in the “interactive process” and understanding how to obtain the proper medical documentation to substantiate the need for the “reasonable accommodation” is a must. Attend this informative webinar for the answer to this and much more.
