ADAAA: One Size Does Not Fit All
Presented by Sandy Johnson, Disability and Productivity Consultant
October 11, 2013
The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) has broadened the definitions of disability. As a result, many leaves of absence need to be scrutinized more thoroughly for ADAAA compliance. If not properly handled, an employer could be exposed to a lawsuit brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission for failing to accommodate a disabled employee. This webinar by Workplace PossibilitiesSM bloggers Alycia Bleeker and Sandy Johnson details five mistakes employers could make when complying with ADAAA regulations.
