ADA, ADAAA and Accommodation in the Workplace

Wednesday, November 9th | T Mobile Bellevue

LWHRA is co-sponsoring this great evening panel discussion with the Disability Management Employer Coalition (DMEC).

Years after implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Amendments Act employers continue to find administration of the ADAAA a complex and often frustrating matter. Join us for a panel discussion with industry experts on the increasingly complex issue of accommodation in the workplace. 

Attendees will learn:

  • Their legal obligations under the ADAAA as well as other Federal and State Laws
  • When to engage employees in the accommodation discussion
  • How to prepare your supervisors and managers to respond to accommodation requests
  • If/when a leave of absence is a reasonable accommodation
  • Which resources are available to assist you with reasonable accommodation requests
