Mental Illness, Intellectual Disabilities and the ADA
|Date / Time:
With the dramatic expansion of the American With Disabilities Act (ADA) by the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) and the EEOC's ADAAA regulations, ADA charges and lawsuits have skyrocketed. A great many of the burgeoning claims concern matters formerly called mental disabilities and which are now called intellectual disabilities.
This webinar 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.
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.
