Compliance with Title I of the Americans With Disabilities Act Who Suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Friday, February 8, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (PST)
Palo Alto, CA
This course is designed to assist employers to learn about PTSD and help them to determine effective accommodations and comply with Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) – symptoms, rights and confidentiality.
Why Should You Attend:
According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the individualized assessment of virtually all people with PTSD will result in a determination of disability under the ADA; given its inherent nature, PTSD will almost always be found to substantially limit the major life activity of brain function (EEOC Regulations . . . , 2011). With such a high prevalence of PTSD in the population, it is likely that almost all employers will employ individuals with this disorder; should be aware of the major symptoms and be able to make reasonable accommodation whenever possible for these individuals. This is especially critical when those individuals have experienced this trauma during service to our country. The percentage of veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts believed to have a full PTSD syndrome is estimated, conservatively, to be 30 %.
This session will cover information about PTSD and help you to determine effective accommodations and comply with Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) along with information on symptoms, rights and confidentiality. At the end of this webinar, the speaker will handle your specific questions related to the topic.
At the end of this webinar, participants will understand the symptoms of PTSD, questions to be asked and accommodations to be taken to remain in compliance with the ADA.
