Event Details

Diversity AdvantageBoth federal and state laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of physical or mental disability. However, in the 21st Century, persons with disabilities continue to face negative attitudes and discrimination in the workplace. This training will help participants understand the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the disabilities provisions of the Illinois Human Rights Act (IHRA). In addition, the training defines “disability”; explains who is a “qualified individual with a disability”; explains the employer’s obligation to provide reasonable accommodations; defenses for failing to do so; and provides guidance on pre-employment inquiries regarding disabilities.
