About this Event

CLE Topics for 2019 Symposium. Webex (4 CLE Credits including 1 credit of Elimination of Bias and 1 credit of Substance Abuse)

1) The Protection & Advocacy System. (12:30-1:20) (1 general credit)

The Protection and Advocacy (P&A) System and Client Assistance Program (CAP) comprise the nationwide network of congressionally mandated, legally based disability rights agencies. P&A agencies have the authority to provide legal representation and other advocacy services, under federal laws, to all people with disabilities

2) Integrating Substance Use Disorders into Your Workforce ADA Accommodations (1:30-2:20) (1 credit of substance abuse)

Covering the protections under the Americans with Disabilities Act that are afforded to individuals who are suffering from a substance abuse disorder. We will discuss the ADA responsibilities of employers, who are covered entities, when they have an employee with a substance abuse problem.

3) The Endrew Decision: What does it Mean for Systemic Litigation. (2:30-3:20) (1 general credit)

We are now 2 years removed from the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision Endrew v. Douglas County School District. This case offered a chance to make sure that school personnel are collaborating with parents and that they are, indeed, creating ambitious academic standards for students with a disability. We will take a look at how this decision has changed the landscape of systemic litigation in special education law.

4) Americans with Disabilities Act Title III - Accessibility in Public Places, Commercial facilities, and Private entities administering examinations and courses. (3:30-4:20) (1 credit elimination of bias)

Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in places of public accommodations as well as commercial facilities (privately owned, nonresidential facilities such as factories, warehouses, or office buildings) to comply with the ADA Standards. The Department of Justice (DOJ) revised its ADA Title III regulations regarding examinations and courses, effective March 15, 2011. These regulations apply to applications, licensing, certification, or credentialing for education or for professions and trades
