The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is the equal opportunity law for people with disabilities. This act protects the 1 in 5 Americans (a total of 56 million people) who live with disabilities who are able to work and desire to be gainfully employed. This course simplifies the ADA for all employers with 15 or more people, and their employees who are involved in the hiring, evaluation, and dismissal processes.
Beginning with an overview of what defines a disabled person and the disabilities addressed under the ADA and the ADA Amendments of 2008 (ADAAA), this course clarifies the rights of the employer, as well as the employment rights of the disabled candidate or employee.
Present this course to all personnel whose job responsibilities involve the hiring, evaluation, and termination of employees so they are fully informed and compliant with the ADA and the ADAAA while also providing the most productive work environments for disabled workers.
