Why Should You Attend:

The duty to provide reasonable accommodation is a fundamental statutory requirement under the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended by the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act. The law requires reasonable accommodations so that employees with disabilities can enjoy the “benefits and privileges of employment” equal to those enjoyed by similarly situated employees without disabilities. The ADAAA broadened the concept of disability under the ADA by statutorily rejecting Supreme Court decisions that took a narrower view.

This course will explore the fundamental aspects of the ADA/ADAAA as it relates to employment and key compliance factors to adhere to the requirements of the law.
