Legal Implications are Important, but Practical Applications are Critical

Springboard Consulting LLC – in collaboration with the Workforce Opportunity Network, will host a Must Attend Webinar.

The Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act (ADAAA)
Legal Implications are Important, but Practical Applications are Critical"

Tuesday, July 26, 2011, 12:00 – 1:15pm EDT
In Celebration of the 21st Anniversary of the ADA

On May 24th of this year, the EEOC’s final ADA regulations went into effect in order to implement the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA). Though the regulations were designed to simplify the determination of who has a disability and shift the focus from questions of discrimination to accommodation, employers are more confused than ever and concerned that virtually all employees will now be considered disabled.

The new regulations require collaborative efforts that now include Human Resources, Diversity and Work-Life professionals along with their counterparts in Affirmative Action. So while the legal implications are important, the practical applications are critical.  It’s the application of best practices that will help participants to successfully hire and retain the most qualified individuals, regardless of disability while mitigating ADA related risk.

This Webinar, delivered by Shelley Kaplan, Springboard’s ADA Services Manager and Nadine Vogel, President, Springboard, will address the “why” and more importantly, the “how” of appropriately supporting individuals with disabilities, as defined by the ADA, in both the workforce and the workplace.
