Mental Illness And Depression Under The ADA
Webinar - Human Resources / Employment Law Training Webinar
More and more employees are requesting
accommodations for mental illness under the Americans with Disabilities Act
(ADA) and its Amendments Act (ADAAA). It’s absolutely vital that you understand
exactly what’s covered — and how to balance your organization’s responsibilities
with your employees’ rights. You’re required to make a reasonable accommodation
— but what does that mean and what kinds of mental illness and depression are
Make sure everyone in your organization is treated fairly and your
organization is protected.
When you attend Mental Illness & Depression Under the ADA, you’ll learn what to
do when an employee requests accommodation … what’s covered under the ADA … and
even how to address the mental illnesses that aren’t, but may be a subject of
concern for you or your employees.
This training is critical for all HR professionals.
If you’re in HR, you need to make sure you stay current with the latest ADA laws
regarding Mental Illness & Depression Under the ADA. In just one hour, you’ll
get the most up-to-date information and be confident you know what is expected —
and required — of your organization.
A Glimpse At What You're Agenda:
- Employer and employee rights under the ADA and
- The variety of reasonable accommodations
possible to address mental illness — and those accommodations beyond the scope
of the acts
- How to address a mental illness that is not
covered by the ADA since it doesn’t rise to the level of a disability,
including some issues relating to stress — and those outside the scope of the
ADA (sexual behavior disorders, compulsive gambling, and disorders created by
illegal drug use)
- What to do when an employee requests an
accommodation due to a mental illness
- What to do when an employee doesn’t request an
accommodation due to a mental illness but you suspect the existence of one —
how to avoid “regarded as” violations of the ADA
- How the ADA and the FMLA work together — and
what to do when they appear to be at odds with each other
- Tips on best practices when working with an
employee who has a mental illness
If any of these ring a bell, your organization
is suffering from a lack of communication!
