ADA Vs. Safety: Don't Let Safety Policy Undermine Disability Accommodations
|Date / Time:
You spend a lot of time making sure your workers do their jobs safely, and you take pride in your proactive initiatives. Unfortunately, these are the very things that could land you on the losing side of an ADA lawsuit.
Let's say you fire a worker who has consistently failed to operate his forklift in a safe manner, despite repeated warnings and training. What you don't know is that a protected medical condition is behind his poor performance - which means you had a duty to work towards a reasonable accommodation instead of showing him the door. The mistake is understandable, but it's one that can cost your organization dearly.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- Why prompt disciplinary action to correct or remove an unsafe worker could violate the ADA
- How recent changes to the ADA have increased your accommodation obligations
- What to do when you suspect that a protected health condition is behind a worker's poor safety performance - and how to correct the problem without getting sued
- How the ADA can affect your return-to-work and modified duty policies and procedures
- The best way to work through the reasonable accommodation process in a way that doesn't jeopardize the safety of the affected worker or others
- Whether there are times the ADA can actually trump your safety obligations
- How to handle employee drug and alcohol use in an ADA-compliant manner
- When it's a good idea to call in outside counsel rather than trying to handle a potentially explosive situation on your own
- And much more...

|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.
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.
