Presented by Burton Fishman
Recorded On: Thursday, October 18, 2012
Requests for reasonable accommodation under the amended Americans with Disabilities Act present new challenges for employers and the possibility of lawsuits if handled improperly. And with the rising cost of benefits, employers must be able to coordinate their benefits programs to reduce costly overlapping and duplication That is why we have developed the two-part ADA Compliance Series.
The ADA requires reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities, but now the requests may not only be beyond the employer’s capacity to provide — they may come from an employee with no current impairment. How can you comply with the law and avoid facing a lawsuit?
Learn how to handle accommodation requests under the ADA and the EEOC’s ADA regulations in an exclusive 90-minute webinar featuring Burt Fishman, one of the nation’s leading authorities on the ADA. Mr. Fishman will share best practices for updating your policies and practices to keep you in compliance and answer your questions during the live Q&A portion of the webinar.
