Americans with Disabilities Act (How to Comply with Federal and State Disability Laws)
Thursday, April 18, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (CDT)
Both 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.
Trainings with the Illinois Department of Human Rights - Institute for Training and Development are accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Illinois Human Rights Act.
A person with a disability needing an accommodation to participate in IDHR trainings should contact the Institute for Training and Development at 312-814-2477 or (TTY) 866-740-3953 or at IDHR.Training@illinois.gov
The Institute for Training and Development requires seven (7) business days to obtain any reasonable accommodation. If for some reason you cannot attend your scheduled training, you must request the cancellation of the reasonable accommodation at least 72 hours prior to the date of training. All requests must be in writing and should include reason for cancelation. Failure to comply may result in suspension of future training privileges.
