Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will discuss the employment rights of persons with psychiatric disabilities and conversely the employer’s responsibilities toward those employees under the ADA/ADAAA and other applicable laws, with emphasis on workplace accommodations and discuss issues related to how to qualify a person with disability for a job, how to manage workplace issues involving person with psychiatric disability, concept of direct threat etc.

Why Should You Attend:

How often have we thought of a mass shooting at a workplace, or other work-related catastrophes thinking we knew or should have seen it coming? Of course that’s easier said than done.

The Americans with Disabilities Act requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals with disabilities, including those with mental impairments, that substantially limit their major life activities--unless the accommodation causes an undue hardship on the employer; or the employee poses a direct threat either to his safety or the safety of others.

But what does all that really mean? When interacting with employees with psychiatric conditions, which fears and concerns are valid? How should employers address these concerns, especially in light of the increase in and devastating damage caused by incidents of workplace violence? How do you know when someone has a psychiatric illness or is just plain strange? And, when someone does have a psychiatric illness, what are your obligations?

Now knowing the answers to these questions could guarantee you legal trouble. By becoming aware of your responsibilities you can take your first steps toward preventing tragedy, ensuring a productive, engaged workforce and safe workplace, and that you are protected against legal liability. Attend this webinar to understand how the ADA Amendment Act broadens the definition of disability to psychiatric disabilities, how to set job qualification criteria for a psychiatric disable person, how to resolve workplace problems.
