Accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are difficult for employers to manage.

In fact, complaints about violations of the ADA are at an all-time high. In the first two months of 2018 the EEOC collected $405,500 from employers… all disability discrimination claims.

This webinar provides an overview of the ADA’s accommodation requirements, and discusses recent developments, common mistakes made by employers that create ADA exposure, and best practices for dealing with ADA accommodation issues.
