The brochure that is now available is from the 2015 program and is representative of the type of agenda that will be covered in 2016. The 2016 brochure will be available in June.

In this one-day limited enrollment interactive Workshop, ADA expert David Fram will focus on critical ADA workplace developments, including significant court cases, breathtaking new EEOC policies, and the latest practical questions from HR and EEO professionals, medical professionals, and lawyers.

Topics covered include who is a "qualified" individual with a "disability," conduct rules, "reasonable accommodation" requirements, and developments concerning medical examinations of applicants and incumbents, with an opening session highlighting the most common questions from ADA practitioners and "checklists" for analyzing and documenting ADA/Rehabilitation Act issues.

The past year was filled with dramatic ADA developments. At this year’s Workshop, we will be discussing hundreds of practical workplace issues, such as:

  • How supervisors and managers should be trained to avoid “regarding” an employee as disabled under the ADAAA;
  • How employers should handle an employee request for an irritant-free or stress-free environment;
  • Whether getting along with others is an essential function of jobs;
  • How employers should deal with situations involving conflicting doctors’ notes;
  • How to deal with employees who have unreliable or unpredictable attendance, or who continually request extensions of leave;
  • Practical issues concerning employees covered under both the ADA and the FMLA;
  • Whether employers can safely give “accommodations” to employees who don’t technically have disabilities or whether this sets up a “regarded as” case;
  • Whether employers really must give accommodations such as non-competitive reassignment or work-at-home; and
  • Whether conduct rules can be enforced if the employee allegedly broke the rule because of a disability.

    Participants will receive the 39th Edition of "Resolving ADA Workplace Questions," an unparalleled research and reference workbook. This Workshop will provide between 6-7.2 CLE / CEU credit hours, depending upon the jurisdiction.
