INFORMATION
Training Overview

It’s Disability Pride Month! Are you in compliance with ADA requests?

Now is an ideal time to update your knowledge of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and its requirements for employers. July is Disability Pride Month, an opportunity to increase awareness about strategies to accommodate employees with disabilities.

Accommodation requests are often high-emotion, driven by fear. Untrained supervisors can cause problems and create unnecessary risks when they are dismissive. Coworkers occasionally treat their accommodated colleagues in a way perceived as harassing.

You must recognize the broad protections of the ADA covering your organization’s employees and handle accommodations effectively, from addressing permanent disabilities to long COVID.
