Description:

With the dramatic expansion of the American With Disabilities Act (ADA) by the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) and the EEOC's ADAAA regulations and December 2016 guidance, 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. In FY 2016, the EEOC resolved approximately 5,000 charges based on mental health conditions and obtained $20 million for individuals allegedly denied employment or reasonable accommodations. Employers were hit with many more millions in damages in ADA Court litigations.

Receive the tools to assess if an individual has a covered intellectual disability, and if so, how an employer should determine if the individual is qualified. You will be able 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.

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?

This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in On-Demand Or CD versions, 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.
