Where: Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce 1601 Biscayne Boulevard, Ballroom Level (located inside the Hilton MiamiDowntown)
Description: Claims of ADA violations filed with the EEOC have risen significantly in the last four years. The ADAAA’s expanded definition of who is “disabled” will likely result in this trend continuing. This reality means that knowing how to correctly manage the interactive and reasonable accommodations process is critical.
Examine case studies culled from actual situations dealing with four key phases of the ADA compliance process:
• Accommodations in the hiring process
• Direct threat or abusive behavior caused by a disability
• Accommodation issues related to modified job duties and/or leave
• Termination of an employee who is no longer a “qualified individual” due to a degenerative disability
Attorneys with ADA experience, will work closely with attendees to discuss and develop practical solutions to problems raised in the case studies. Emphasizing best practices, participants will leave with a better understanding of how to deal with the ADA in real life.
