J. J. Keller Introduces Americans With Disabilities Act Training
Neenah, WI — To help companies educate their supervisors on the expanded definition of a “disability” under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) — as amended by the ADA Amendments Act — J. J. Keller has developed its new ADA for Supervisors training program.
With disability-discrimination claims hitting an all-time high in 2010, J. J. Keller decided to give employers a way to help protect their companies from legal action.
“With the rule changes, employees becoming more savvy about their rights, and the courts just beginning to chime in with their interpretations, staying on top of good compliance practices can go a long way toward keeping an employer safe from an expensive and time-consuming claim,” said Darlene Clabault, J. J. Keller senior editor, human resources.
ADA for Supervisors uses real-world examples throughout to illustrate the right way to handle ADA issues, and covers:
- Understanding the law (ADA and ADAAA)
- Definitions (substantial limitations, major life activities, major bodily functions, regarded as having a condition, mitigating measures, etc.)
- Job descriptions
- Undue hardship and direct threat provisions
ADA for Supervisors is available in DVD (811-DVD), Pay Per View video (811-PPV), Interactive Online (811-IDC-K) and Interactive CD-ROM (811-CMM-P) formats, as well as part of the online Video Subscription Service, by calling 800-327-6868 and referencing Promo Code 51383 or visiting jjkeller.com/ADAtraining.
