Episode 43: ADA and Employment: Disclosure and Reasonable Accommodations

Wednesday – April 5, 2017 
1:00 - 1:30 PM (Eastern) and 12:00 Noon-12:30 PM (Central)

A hallmark of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is the provision of reasonable accommodation to ensure equality in the workplace. In this episode of ADA Live, we will discuss what is and is not reasonable accommodation and how to request accommodation. When employers hear the word “disability,” they may become concerned with cost and legal liability. Often, employers do not understand that they too have rights under ADA. Employees generally do not know that they have responsibilities in disclosing disability and the need for accommodation.

This presentation will address the following questions: What is “Reasonable Accommodation?” What is not “Reasonable Accommodation?” When can someone get an accommodation? How do I ask for accommodation? What rights and responsibilities do I have as a person with a disability? What rights and responsibilities does an employer have? When is the “right time” to disclose a need for accommodation? What are the concerns people have when they disclose a disability and how are they protected?

FREE and no registration is required.
