Mental Illness, Intellectual Disabilities And The ADA

Description:

With the dramatic expansion of the American With Disabilities Act (ADA) by the ADA Amendment Act of 2008 (ADAAA) and the EEOC's ADAAA final regulations effective as of May 24, 2011, ADA claims have skyrocketed. A great many of the burgeoning claims concern matters formerly called mental disabilities and which are now called intellectual disabilities. Intellectual disabilities, which may include the ability to think, concentrate, communicate, interact with others and disorders including e.g., major depressive, post-traumatic stress, obsessive compulsion, bipolar and schizophrenia, are among the more challenging disabilities facing employers.

The ADAAA means most ADA issues will now turn on whether an individual is qualified, whether a reasonable accommodation exists or whether there is a direct threat, rather than on whether an individual is disabled. As almost every job requires the ability to think, concentrate, communicate and interact with others to one degree or another, the intellectual disability accommodation issues facing employers are both extremely complex and challenging.

This live audio conference will give the tools to assess if an individual has a covered intellectual disability, and if so, how the employer should determine if the individual is qualified. Finally, it will provide the tools for employers to successfully navigate the maze posed by the interactive process and determine if a reasonable accommodation exists or whether the employer is confronted by an undue hardship or direct threat.

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.
