Event description
Explore the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment Act (ADAAA) beyond the basics!

About this Event

The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment Act (ADAAA) celebrates its 30th anniversary in July, so now is a good time for companies to assess their programs. Join Human Resources (HR) Consulting firm Buck, to explore ADAAA administration beyond the basics. Absence management consultants Mary Armstrong-Flippo and Joyce Pelissari, together with Elizabeth Woodburn, an employee communications consultant, will share information and resources attendees can use to strengthen their company’s ADAAA programs and mitigate compliance risk.

As part of the interactive workshop, attendees will participate in an exercise to help identify disability personas, complete an accommodations journey mapping exercise and learn how to:

• Create a welcoming and engaging culture in their workplace

• Develop corporate communications that address various disabilities

• Promote empathy in employee interactions (We’ll share case studies to highlight strategies organizations can implement today!)

The session will also cover the components of making sound decisions, stay-at-work and return-to-work integration, and administration outsourcing options, and HR and manager training. And, we’ll discuss current case law and court decisions, focusing on lessons learned to avoid the high risk of compliance violations.

The workshop will help you answer the following questions:

• Are you confident in your written policy?

• Are you holding true with the intent of the law?

• Do your managers know what to say, or what not to say as may be the case, and how to follow your company procedures?

After all, your people are your most important asset and when they thrive, so does your organization!
