The ADA Amendments Act: Strategies to Avoid Discrimination Lawsuits
23% of all charges filed with the EEOC contained an allegation of disability discrimination – and this number is poised to skyrocket.
What’s the reason for the spike in discrimination claims? The Americans With Disabilities Act Amendments Act. The ADAAA reverses a decade of Supreme Court developments and expands the law’s coverage and its definition of “disability.”
In fact, ADAAA has so dramatically expanded the definition of “disability” that you may feel like EVERYONE on your staff is disabled. Certainly, your employee’s attorney will be making that claim.
To help you deal with disability discrimination claims – and to stop them BEFORE they happen – we’ve developed a session designed to keep you in compliance (and out of trouble). Introducing The ADA Amendments Act: Strategies to Avoid Discrimination Lawsuits.
This audio recording, presented by noted employment attorney Jonathan Hyman, will help you better understand this landmark legislation. This comprehensive 75-minute session on the new provisions of the ADAAA will teach you:
How the law narrowly defined “disability” before the ADAAA
How the ADAAA’s expansive definition of disability covers virtually anyone in your organization with a disability
How the law even protects non-disabled employees
Why it is more important than ever to reasonably accommodate employees’ medical restrictions
The ADAAA makes significant changes to how employers interact with employees and their medical issues. It is critical for employers to understand these requirements, to avoid defending a difficult discrimination lawsuit. Specifically, you’ll learn:
The ADAAA’s changes to what it means for an employee to be “disabled”
Why it has become increasingly difficult for employers to have cases dismissed on the legal issue of whether an employee has a “disability”
What special provisions not only protect employees with actual disabilities, but also employees who are perceived to be disabled
How to properly engage in the interactive process and make reasonable accommodations for the disabled
This comprehensive audio recording focuses not only on the new requirements of the ADAAA, but how those requirements change how employers interact with disabled employees. You’ll learn how to administer and apply the ADA in the face of these new statutory and future regulatory enactments.
