Verdict and settlement amounts are on the rise. Without expert guidance about how to navigate the tricky waters of disability law, employers face enormous liability risks. This topic helps those responsible for dealing with disability issues to understand the most important provisions of the ADA, and the detailed regulations promulgated by the EEOC. The material will explain how those provisions and regulations apply to each stage of employment, from recruiting and hiring through termination. It will also provide you with practical tools to administer the reasonable accommodation process, such as job descriptions and checklists for interactive process meetings.
