Part I: Accommodating Employees with Mental Health Impairments in the Workplace 

 

Job accommodations can be vital for the successful employment of individuals with mental health impairments. Knowing how, when, and why it might be necessary to disclose a disability is the first and often most difficult part of the accommodation process. This session will provide information on the disclosure of mental health impairments in the workplace, the limitations associated with these impairments, and the accommodations that might be needed. Real-life accommodation situations and solutions will be interspersed throughout the session. A question and answer session will be included at the end.


Part II: Reasonable Accommodations and the Interactive Process Under the Americans with Disabilities Act

In this second session, audience members' learning will be more focused on the interactive process. Throughout the 90-minute webinar, audience members will identify when and how the Americans with Disabilities Act and its Amendments (ADAAA) applies to employees. Audience members will also learn how a six-step interactive process can be utilized for handling accommodation requests. 

Finally, audience members will review real-life accommodation situations and solutions that have been implemented to harness the potential of employees with disabilities.
