The Gibbons Employment Academy Webinar Series - Disability and Reasonable Accommodations
The second program in our Gibbons Employment Academy Webinar Series, focusing on Disability and Reasonable Accommodations, is scheduled for next Wednesday, June 29, from 8:30 to 10:30 am.
The ADA Amendments Act of 2008 and the EEOC’s recently issued regulations explaining and implementing that Act have been widely touted as significantly expanding the definition of disability. It is anticipated that as a result of the Act, more employees than ever before will be considered disabled and will be seeking accommodations. Employers must understand what is deemed a disability under the law and what steps are necessary when employees request accommodations for their disabilities. The webinar will explore these topics as well as provide a survey of accommodations that have been deemed reasonable and those that have not.
The Gibbons Employment Academy Webinar Series is appropriate for in-house attorneys, human resources professionals and supervisory employees, and CLE credit is available. Two additional webinars are scheduled for the Fall: Employee Leaves on September 21 and Performance Management and Termination on November 9. The webinars can be purchased individually or as a series and are a cost-effective way to train decision makers on critical management and employment law issues.
