According to this training video, approximately 1 in 5 working age individuals in this country have a disability, and more than half of them are unemployed. These individuals may be even better employees than some who have no disabilities. So why then is this the case? Employers could state a number of reasons, such as individuals with disabilities would not make good employees and that there must be uniformity in the workplace, but these beliefs are often based on unfair and unfounded stereotypes. In order to better protect those individuals who may be discriminated against, Congress created the ADA, or Americans with Disabilities Act.
So how does this Act define someone who has a disability, or even what a disability is? Also, how does the Act require employers to accommodate these individuals? This online training teaches you this information. It teaches you about how the ADA affects the hiring of, and maintaining, disabled employees. In fact, if a worker is regarded as having a disability but in fact does not, the ADA may protect that individual. Learning about the Act is critical to understanding any potential legal ramifications and to creating a more equal and fair workplace. Implement the material presented here and tap into the resource that is the millions of potential workers who have disabilities.
