People with disabilities represent one of the largest diversity populations in our country and in our workplaces. After over twenty years of the ADA, most leaders understand the basics around compliance. Yet, many leaders struggle with the “gray areas” of the ADA in real-life in the workplace. During this session, we will co-explore key situations and dilemmas around leading workers with disabilities. This will include hiring, disclosure, accommodation, retention, inclusion, disability inquiry and other issues. Also, we will consider recent changes in laws and policies that impact disability practices in the workplace. The interactive session will include film clip discussion, presentations, case studies and scenario analysis.
The training will discuss the most significant changes introduced for the ADAAA in the interpretation of the disability definition and will answer the audience’s questions about this Law.
