Americans with Disabilities Act for Managers
- This course is designed to help employers gain a clear understanding of the Americans With Disabilities Act, or ADA. Managers will learn how the law applies to their organization and employees and what they can do to stay compliant. The course also covers a list of do's and don'ts when it comes to the ADA.
The Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, has decreased discrimination against people with disabilities. However, the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that the unemployment rate for people with disabilities is twice as high as for people without disabilities. People with disabilities are often treated unfairly by employers and potential employers. As employers, it's our responsibility to educate ourselves so we don't discriminate against our employees. In this course, we'll take a closer look at the ADA and its amendments. Then, we'll define disability and reasonable accommodations, and walk through a list of dos and don'ts.
