The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment Act of 2008 are certainly complex in understanding and enforcement. The scope of the ADAAA is daunting and a compliance challenge for HR officials as well as line managers.
This webinar will provide an overview of all facets of ADAAA and provide practical tips for compliance. Common areas of noncompliance include a lack of understanding of the definition of disability and physical and mental impairments that are covered under the Act. HR and line managers often mishandle providing reasonable accommodations and engaging the employee in the “interactive process.”
Managing leaves under the ADA Amendments can be especially challenging, especially when ADA overlaps with Family and Medical Leave Act and/or workers’ compensation. The webinar speaker will share a wealth of her experience in complying to provide an informative session.

Thank you for the spreadsheet webinar. The webinar was informative and helpful. Although many of the concepts are known and understood by Industrial and Process Engineers, it is always helpful to have a straightforward review. The spreadsheet will be beneficial in being able to help identify areas of risk and areas that may require some attention.

This was a very informative session, it did help my company by raising awareness in areas we lack policies. The only thing I would suggest get added to the session is direct information relating to Accounting, ex. Taxation rules for record retention as they are some records which a company is required to keep indefinitely.

Overall I found the video conference well organized and very informative. The presenter, Ronald Adler, was certainly extremely knowledgeable and presented the subject matter in a well organized, direct and succinct manner. Afford the attendee the ability to track and record paid attendance/activity without a lot of tracking and follow up in order to gather the necessary information required to record the CPEs earned and paid for.

As this was our first experience, we did not know what to expect. I believe the webinar was informative and to the point, and explained to us the purpose of the I-9, and how the company can be affected by an audit. It really motivated us to review our files and bring them up to date.
