January 17, 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. ET Free Webinar: The Intersection of ADA, FMLA, and Workers' Compensation

This is a free webinar offered through the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center, one of the 10 Regional ADA Centers in the ADA National Network that provides training and technical assistance on the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Excerpt from the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center:  Figuring out how to navigate and comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act can be difficult in itself. So when FMLA or Workers’ Compensation are also involved, confusion about how each law applies is understandable. As cases increase in complexity with more than one law to apply, it’s important we understand the obligations under each and ensure we have effective processes in place to manage them. After a deep review of the six areas of intersection, we will go through an exercise to see how the intersections apply in real scenarios. To help employers effectively implement each law, we will explore best practices to set up employers and employees for success.

Interested in Continuing Education? SHRM, HRCI, and CRCC credits are available.

This is a free webinar offered through the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center, one of the 10 Regional ADA Centers in the ADA National Network  that  provides training and technical assistance on the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Excerpt from the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center: Join us for the second of a 3 part series, ADA Lessons from Case Law, where we will examine recent court cases as they pertain to different areas of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). A cornerstone of the ADA is the requirement that covered entities provide effective communication. The ADA's effective communication obligation raises interesting questions for law enforcement and corrections given the unique issues that arise in the criminal justice context. Through an in-depth review of recent court cases and settlement agreements, participants will learn what courts are saying about providing effective communication in the criminal justice system, including best practices and practical strategies. The presenter is Rachel M. Weisberg, Staff Attorney for Equip for Equality.

Part 1: Interactive Process: Lessons from Case Law is available.
