  • “Workplace Accommodations for Neurodiverse Employees and Compliance under the ADA”

    Headshot of JoAnna Barnes

    Tuesday, April 12, from 11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. Eastern

    Description:

    Neurodiverse employees are used to thinking “outside the box”; it’s time employers start thinking “outside the box” too and embrace ways for all individuals to be included in the workplace. Too often the focus of employers is compliance with the anti-discrimination requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act as Amended (ADA) when instead the focus should be on providing opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Employers need to be asking, “How can we successfully employ an individual with a disability?” instead of, “How do we not get sued for a violation of the ADA?” 

    This presentation will address key elements of Title I of the ADA including:  who is an “individual with a disability”; who is a “qualified employee or applicant”; what is a “reasonable accommodation”; and, what is an “undue hardship” on the operation of the employer’s business. It will also briefly address the requirements of Title III of the ADA pertaining to testing accommodations for examinations and courses which can include workplace credentialing.
