Course Description

Under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a job, the work environment, or the way things are usually done during the hiring process.

These modifications enable an individual with a disability to have an equal opportunity not only to get a job, but successfully perform their job tasks to the same extent as people without disabilities.

The ADA requires reasonable accommodations as they relate to three aspects of employment:

  1. Ensuring equal opportunity in the application process
  2. Enabling a qualified individual with a disability to perform the essential functions of a job
  3. Making it possible for an employee with a disability to enjoy equal benefits and privileges of employment

This interactive webinar explores the issue of what should the process be between employer and employee when trying to accommodate individuals with disabilities while complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Whether or not an accommodation is reasonable will vary according to the position the employee holds, the way their disability affects their ability to do their job, and the environment that they work in.

All companies, employees and applicants for employment that want to learn about who is covered under The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as amended (ADAAA) by should attend this webinar to obtain a clear understanding about their rights, obligations and responsibilities under the law.
