Compliance with Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) for Employees with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
Friday, March 22, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (PDT)
Palo Alto, CA
This webinar will review the nature of TBI and issues relating to complying with the ADA with suggestions for accommodation. Along with reviews the session will also help you understand how to deal with the change in the work environment which may be difficult for the person with TBI.
Why Should You Attend:
The Brain Injury Association of America estimates that every year about 1.4 million Americans experience a traumatic brain injury. Half of all TBIs are due to accidents involving automobiles, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians. Motor vehicle accidents are the major cause of TBI in people under age 75. For those 75 and older, falls cause the majority of TBIs. Approximately twenty percent of TBIs are due to violence, such as gunshots and child abuse. About three percent are due to sports injuries. Another type of brain injury is called Acquired brain Injury. This describes damage to the brain not associated with trauma to the head or skull and typically involves the entire brain.
There are various levels of TBI, including mild and moderate or severe TBI, therefore some people with TBIs will have a disability under the ADA and some will not. Many employers will hire individuals who either have TBI at the time of initial employment or will develop it on the job or outside the job in personal life. Particularly because many people do not realize they have mild TBI, behavioral issues and work competency issues may arise. Supervisory personnel should be knowledgeable about the signs and symptoms to avoid discharge or disciplining of an employee whose behavior is due to TBI and not willful behaviors.
By attending this 90 minute webinar you will be able to define the various levels of TBI and identify symptoms that could be mistaken for willful failure to complete job assignments, harassment of other employees or inattention and lack of concentration. The participant will know what questions and testing may be conducted and what reasonable accommodations may be made.

- Definitions and symptoms of various levels of TBI.
