In this one-day limited enrollment interactive Workshop, ADA expert David Fram will focus on critical ADA workplace developments, including dramatic new court cases and EEOC positions. As always, David will focus on 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 questions and examinations, concentrating on critical issues surrounding confidentiality of medical information.
At this year’s Workshop, we will be discussing hundreds of practical workplace issues, including fast-breaking developments on issues such as:
What words supervisors and managers should be listening for from employees that technically trigger the ADA; The importance of training supervisors to give accurate – not inflated -- performance reviews; The usefulness of insulating supervisors/managers from medical information, and how they should be trained to avoid “regarding” an employee as disabled under the ADAAA; The EEOC's latest positions on intermittent leave, indefinite leave, and one-year return-to-work policies; How employers should handle an employee request for an irritant-free (including perfume-free) or stress-free environment; Whether attendance, getting along with co-workers, workplace stress, timeliness, and lifting are an essential functions 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 and what to document in these situations; Whether employers really must give accommodations such as non-competitive reassignment or work-at-home; Whether conduct rules can be enforced if the employee allegedly broke the rule because of a disability; and How supervisors and managers should be trained to handle discussions with employees about medical information, and how to maintain the confidentiality of medical information.
Participants will receive the 43rd Edition of "Resolving ADA Workplace Questions," an unparalleled research and reference workbook. This Workshop will provide between 5.5 - 6.6 CLE / PDC / CEU credit hours, depending upon the jurisdiction.
