NELI will be presenting the 2023 ADA Workshop as a LIVE WEBINAR Conference. The program will be presented over 2 days, with 3 hours of instruction per day.
You may participate "live" and/or watch the recording at your convenience.
David Fram will again be presenting NELI’s renowned ADA Workshop as a live webinar, complete with comprehensive materials and the ability to interact with questions.
DAY ONE: 11:30 am - 2:45 pm (Eastern) (includes 15-minute break)
Update on the Definition of "Disability"
Discussion of the continuing wave of Court of Appeals cases on the definition of “disability” under the ADAAA, including cases on whether conditions are “impairments,” new "major life activities," how long a condition must last, how serious the condition must be, practical tips on how supervisors can avoid “regarding” an individual as disabled, and the wave of mental health and Long-COVID issues employers are beginning to face.
Developments on Whether an Individual is "Qualified”
Update on the latest court cases and practical considerations on the meaning of “qualified,” whether employers may change job functions and quantity standards, the importance of up-to-date job descriptions, whether handling job stress, getting along with co-workers and the public, regular and/or on-site attendance, overtime, and lifting are considered “essential,” as well as critical evidence concerning whether an individual is “qualified,” including the danger of inflated performance evaluations by supervisors, and inconsistent or inaccurate doctors’ notes from employes.
Analysis of particular conduct rules, such as policies on drugs (including state-legalized marijuana), alcohol, violence, safety, co-worker courtesy, and tardiness, and whether and when discipline must be rescinded if an employee breaks a conduct rule because of a disability.
DAY TWO: 11:30 am - 2:45 pm (Eastern) (includes 15-minute break)
Update on Practical "Reasonable Accommodation" Issues
Discussion of the latest Court of Appeals cases on practical reasonable accommodation issues, including fast-breaking new cases on the meaning of "reasonable," what technically triggers the duty to interact, when accommodations are not required, whether an employer will be “punished” for doing a “good deed” by providing more than required by the law, and particular accommodation requests such as leave (including repeated leave extensions), schedule adjustments, change of supervisors, non-competitive reassignment, shift changes, a smell-free workplace, and the multi-faceted questions involved in analyzing work-at-home issues.
ADA/FMLA Overlap Issues
In this special session, Francesco DeLuca of Epstein Becker Green will present ADA/FMLA overlap issues on an employer's obligations when an employee's condition is covered under both statutes, including questions concerning whether either/both statutes have been technically triggered, and which statute provides greater rights on the inception of leave, while the employee is out on leave, and when the employee returns from the leave.
Participants will receive a PDF link for the 55th Edition of "Resolving ADA Workplace Questions," an unparalleled research and reference workbook.
