Allergies And Fragrance Sensitivity: Master Common To Complex Accomodation Issues Under The ADA

Date: Recorded
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) defines “disability” as “a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.” In some cases, fragrance sensitivity and related issues such as respiratory impairments, allergies, food allergies and food sensitivities may qualify.

The accommodations for many disabilities are straightforward, if not always easy to implement. But, disabilities in the category above can be a little trickier for employers to handle properly.

Join us for an in-depth webinar led by consultants with the Job Accommodation Network, and learn what you need to know about your legal obligations in this area.

Learning Objectives:
  • Common job-related issues for employees with allergies and fragrance sensitivity
  • Accommodation approaches to consider for employees with allergies and fragrance sensitivity
  • Challenging allergy- and sensitivity-related issues, and how to address them with your workforce
  • Various accommodation options, and how to implement them into your organization
  • And more!
