Part I: Mastering the Essential Fundamentals of the Americans With Disabilities Act

March 20, 2023

This is Part I of a two-part webinar. To purchase the series, click here.


Many employers have a difficult time understanding their compliance obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). While organizations generally understand that the ADA requires an employer to provide a reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities who are employees or applicants for employment, they don’t truly grasp the fundamental requirements of the ADA, such as:

  • Does the ADA apply to my organization?
  • Who is a “qualified individual with a disability” under the ADA?
  • What constitutes a “reasonable accommodation” under the ADA?
  • Can I require an employee who is requesting an accommodation under the ADA to provide documentary “proof” of their disability from a physician?
  • Am I obligated to provide a qualified individual with a disability with their preferred accommodation?
  • How can I discipline or terminate a disabled employee who is having performance issues without violating the ADA?
  • Do I have to hire someone with a disability if they apply for a job?
  • Can I ask a job applicant to tell me about their disability and, if so, what questions are permissible under the ADA?

In this 2-part webinar series, we will help you navigate through the fundamental and essential requirements of the ADA. We will identify some of the common pitfalls that arise under the ADA and walk you through the best practices to ensure that your organization satisfies its compliance obligations. And, we will discuss how you can establish an ADA policy that will help your organization manage its ADA request process and reduce its potential liabilities.

This program will consist of a substantive presentation followed by a question and answer period. To ensure that questions are answered, attendees are encouraged to submit their questions in advance of this webinar.

The On-Demand version of this webinar will be available for purchase approximately one week after the conclusion of the live webinar.
