Providing an effective and safe reasonable accommodation for the “unseen” disability is often a daunting process. Learning disabilities, chronic pain, dyslexia, moderate depression, and allergies affect the population at large and our colleagues. The difficult communications that often accompany the discussion of these potentially stigmatizing disabilities, joined with the assumption of a lack of availability of an effective and affordable accommodation, creates unneeded difficulty when managing these requests.
Join Roy Matheson and Amber Cheek, JD as they explore recent real world examples of successful accommodation of unseen disabilities.
ADA Title I: Applying the Tools Available to Employers (Part 3 of 3)
Aired on April 8, 2015 – 2pm ET
One of the ways human resource, safety, and risk management departments exercise leadership in a company, school, or government agency is by effective use of the tools provided by Title I of the ADAAA. Hiring, training, and maintaining an effective workforce (while minimizing the number of days lost to absence) is made easier once recognition, understanding, and application of the tools occur throughout the workplace. Many of the tools complement initiatives such as ergonomic evaluation and workplace wellness.
Join Roy and his invited guests as they conclude this three part series by exploring recent real world examples of application of Title I to its full potential.
