Stay Current on the ADA Amendments Act and Learn to “Push Back” on Unreasonable Requests.

The ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) has been turning HR professionals’ worlds upside down. Issues such as granting your female employees time off to get in vitro fertilization treatments, or allowing someone with IBS to work from home, or determining whether someone with depression is eligible for a dayshift schedule under ADA, can be perplexing. are all part of their day-to-day challenges in dealing with reasonable accommodation.

These are just a few of the day-to-day challenges that HR professionals have been facing due to the ADAAA. The law was broadened and now the list of Major Life Activities includes “major bodily functions.” This broadening of the law had some good intentions; however, with the expansion of the law some employees have already figured out a way to take advantage to cut their own special deals, especially with workplace scheduling and work-from-home arrangements. And, it is not uncommon for employees to ask their doctors to write out, specifically, what they want as an accommodation!

Join this live webinar by expert speaker Natalie Ivey, MBA, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, to ensure you are current on the law—and to learn how to handle complex employee accommodation requests and how to “push back” on requests that are unreasonable. Know how to play the balancing act of providing reasonable accommodation while also managing your business effectively.
