Employers must comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) when hiring employees, from job descriptions to interviewing to accommodations. But the ADA sets a floor, not a ceiling. This conversation will review core ADA requirements and the multitudes of easy and affordable things employers can do to make hiring both more discerning and more inclusive for people with disabilities.
This event will feature group discussion and hands-on exercises reviewing job postings, policies, other materials. The presenters will also discuss redefining accommodations through Universal Design.
