The A.D.A. Amendments Act (A.D.A.A.A.) was signed into law in 2008 and is now in effect! The Americans with Disabilities Act has now been clarified and significantly expanded. As a result, many more people will fall under the coverage of this important law.
This is good news to many people but it raises some concerns for supervisors and managers. Understanding the NEW ADA will cover the fundamentals of the original ADA and explain the changes that are now in effect because of the new Act.
This compliance training is critical for all managers in your organization. The program features a knowledgeable host guiding the viewer through detailed explanations of changes now required by the A.D.A. Amendments Act. A wide variety of work environments are featured to demonstrate disabled Americans working productively with the help of reasonable accommodations. The viewer is provided with answers to the following:
- Who is covered under the new A.D.A.A.A.?
- How has the definition of "disability" been clarified?
- What are "major life activities"?
- How are the needed "reasonable accommodations" determined?
- How should disabilities be handled during job interviews?
- What are "essential functions" in a job description?
There is no doubt that the reach of A.D.A. coverage has been widely expanded with the new A.D.A.A.A. and consequently legal exposure for employers has been broadened. Making sure your managers and supervisors are informed and trained on complying with this law has never been more important. Understanding the New A.D.A. will ensure increased understanding and compliance in your organization.
