You'll get a comprehensive understanding of the ADA. We will explain the importance of compliance and the consequences of non-compliance for 2022. You will also gain a solid understanding of the ADA’s disability accommodation process and the interactions between Federal and State laws.
Non-compliance with the ADA can turn out to be a legal pitfall for employers. Penalties in excess of hundreds of thousands of dollars for non-compliance put employers at substantial risk. Can your organization afford to be non-compliant?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law by George H.W. Bush in July 1990. The Act is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to ensure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion.
Disability accommodation is an important and visible aspect of ethical business practices. Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act is important to ensure your organization is operating ethically.
