Did you know...In fiscal year 2010, private sector workplace discrimination charge filings with the EEOC hit an unprecedented level of 99,922, which included a record-high number of disability charges (25,165) – an increase of 17.3 percent in disability charges over the prior fiscal year. Now is a good time to review your company's policies, practices & procedures to make sure they do not unintentionally discriminate against your employees with disabilities. Remember: if an employee is having performance issues, but hasn't asked for any workplace supports, it's always wise to talk about your expectations and ask if there's any reason why the employee isn't meeting your expectations.
