Webinar 1 of 3:
Disability Disclosure:  From Application to Employment

Wednesday – March 30, 2022

Time: 2:00 – 3:30 pm [Eastern] / 1:00 – 2:30 pm [Central]
12 noon – 1:30 pm [Mountain] / 11:00 am – 12:30 pm [Pacific]

Description

Disclosing a disability may be a consideration when applying for a job or after you are hired. Making the decision to disclose can be overwhelming.  So when do you disclose?  How do you disclose?  Under the ADA you can request an accommodation for any employment related activity. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) an employee must disclose their disability if they need an adjustment or change at work. This session will explain how and when to disclose a disability as well as employer requests for documentation.   Once disclosure has been made the interactive process to investigate accommodations should begin.  This session will be followed up on April 27, 2022 with a discussion on the interactive process.

Description

In the interactive process the applicant or employee and employer each share information about the nature of the disability and the limitations that may affect the ability to perform the essential job duties. This discussion is the foundation of compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The interactive process is required and simply means the employee with a disability and the employer work together to determine an accommodation that is effective for the employee. This session will look at best practices when engaging in discussion to identify and implement accommodations.
