Safety and the ADA: How to Assure that Your Organization is Compliant in Both Key Areas
|Date / Time:
Like it or not, compliance with regulations in one area may put you into direct conflict with complying with another set of regulations. That is one of the challenges employers face when they attempt to meet the requirements for safety and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations.
Let's say you terminate an employee who has consistently failed to operate his forklift in a safe manner despite repeated warnings and training. What you may not know is that a protected medical condition is behind his poor performance. This means you have a duty to work toward a reasonable accommodation instead of showing him the door. The mistake is understandable, but it's one that can cost your organization dearly.
Join us for an in-depth webinar when our presenter will provide you with an understanding of employee accommodation requirements under the ADA, strategies to make sure both the safety and ADA programs are aligned in areas such as return-to-work, drug and alcohol use, and modified work, and legal approaches to consider when things get complicated.
You and your colleagues will learn:
- How recent changes to the ADA have increased your accommodation obligations
- What to do when you suspect a protected health condition is behind an employee's poor safety performance
- How the ADA can affect your return-to-work and modified duty policies and procedures
- When it's a good idea to call in outside counsel rather than trying to handle a potentially explosive situation on your own
- How to handle the tricky issue of employee drug and alcohol use in an ADA-compliant manner

|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.
