Description:

You probably care a great deal about making sure your workplace is attractive for both employees and visitors. Whether you're making cosmetic changes to improve the appearance or adding internal elements for comfort or efficiency, you take pride in your building and everything in it. Unfortunately, new rules from the federal government could land you on the losing side of an ADA lawsuit.

Recently, the Department of Justice adopted revisions to the Standards for Accessible Design as well as modifications to the ADA's general nondiscrimination requirements that will have a significant impact on organizations large and small. These standards include reasonable accommodation measures for employers, penalties for non-compliance, and workplace barriers that must be removed.

As winter comes to a close, many organizations will direct their attention to maintenance and construction projects. If you plan on giving your facilities a spring face-lift - from a simple coat of paint to all out construction - it's crucial for you to get up-to-date on the DOJ's latest building design standards so you can assure your organization is ADA-compliant.

Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:

  • What you need to know to ensure compliance
  • Which organizations are subject to the new building design standards
  • Who is exempt from the requirements due to a "safe harbor" provision
  • Special requirements for private employers with 15 or more employees when new construction is performed - and how to comply
  • How the 2010 standards are a tool for instructing your organization on providing employees with reasonable accommodation for their disabilities
  • Legal liability for failing to comply with ADA regulations on construction standards and how to prevent it
  • Best practices for interior design and parking lots, so you don't inadvertently fail to accommodate disabled employees
  • How to tell if your organization is legally bound to remove a barrier
  • Low-cost ways to accommodate employees with a barrier-free workplace

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?

This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in CD version, as shown in the pricing options below.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
