Since its passing in 1990, the Americans With Disabilities Act has been an enormous benefit to employees but has also posed a multitude of practical, legal and financial challenges to employers. Especially in the wake of COVID-19 restrictions and the “new normal” of remote working, it is more difficult than ever to find the balance between reasonable accommodations and a hardship for the business.

Almost every employer in the United States must be prepared to provide solutions to employees requesting any of a wide range of accommodations, and the requirements for doing so can be complex.

This seminar will highlight legal liabilities resulting from the ADA law in employment, with a focus on deaf, hearing impaired and visually impaired employees. Our panelists will present case studies and offer practical solutions to common ADA issues.

This seminar will:

  • Describe which employers and employees are or are not subject to the ADA.
  • Provide an overview of the ADA Title I (employment) requirements.
  • Define a “reasonable accommodation” under the law with emphasis on the hearing impaired and the visually impaired.
  • Present the two primary legal responsibilities of the employer.
  • Explain the circumstances when an employer does not have to provide an accommodation.
  • Discuss the most common mistakes employers make when asked for an accommodation.
  • Detail devices and methods for actually providing accommodations to the hearing and visually impaired.
