In the past few years, we've seen the number of EEOC charges for disability discrimination increase sharply. Also, we've seen a sharp increase in litigation regarding disability cases. Why? The ADA Amendments Act, made official in 2011, has essentially "opened the flood gates" for disability claims, as the definition of "disability" today is far different from what it used to be earlier.
Today, the ADA is particularly complicated for supervisors and managers who must interact with employees every day, to set performance and behavioral expectations. HR professionals must act as internal consultants to advise managers and supervisors on poor employee performance concerns, which are often intertwined with disability and reasonable accommodation issues.
To learn about your compliance obligations, in easy-to-understand (non-lawyer lingo) join this audio conference with seasoned HR Consultant and Educator, Natalie Ivey, where she will walk you through your compliance obligations as an employer and provide practical guidance on what you need to do to comply with the ADA.
