INFORMATION
Training Overview

Do you accommodate employees with hearing disabilities? Learn the ADA requirements from new EEOC guidance.

On January 25, the EEOC published extensive guidance on “Hearing Disabilities in the Workplace and the Americans with Disabilities Act.” With close to 10,000 words and answers to 18 questions, this document attempts to clarify the requirements for employers.

You need to understand and implement all the rules to prevent discrimination, harassment, and retaliation against job applicants and employees with hearing disabilities.

There are more than 28 million deaf and hard-of-hearing people in the United States. Employers who actively recruit and hire people with disabilities will soon fill the empty seats caused by staff shortages.
