About the Event
Under Title 1 of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a job, the work environment, or the way things are usually done during the hiring process. During this program, participants are put into groups and given one of four roles; HR, training, production and facilities, with each role having a written profile. The groups evaluate the potential issues for persons with six specific disabilities and potential accommodations. Each group develops a plan for each disability. Following the discussion, a fact sheet on ADA is provided.
The event is in the Insurance Capital Board Room at the Chamber.
