The ADA Revisited
- Send to friend
Produced in 2006!
The ADA Revisited is intended to inform managers and other employees about the opportunities and legal responsibilities organizations and individuals face under the Americans with Disabilities Act. It is an excellent way to allay fears and misconceptions
about the ADA while sensitizing employees to the benefits of a diverse workforce that includes persons with different abilities.
The ADA Revisited combines analysis of the ADA by a team of legal experts as well as interviews with employees with disabilities and their managers to provide a balanced view of the impact of the ADA in today's workplaces. We examine the law's requirements regarding interviewing and hiring practices, what constitutes equal access to employment benefits and training, how to determine the "essential functions" of a job, as well as what "reasonable accommodations" are and when they are needed.
Both programs combine the experiences and testimonies of a wide variety of differently abled employees and managers who have first hand experience in applying the principles outlined in the ADA. We recommend that employees view both programs in the series for the most comprehensive training. However, each video can stand alone and either program can be presented independently.
