February Luncheon

February 13, 2018
11:30 AM - 1:15 PM
Onsite registration (if available) and networking begins: 11:00 AM

The February Luncheon is a part of the DallasHR Legal Exchange Conference. To review details for the full day program (which includes this luncheon), please view the program details

Choose Your Own Adventure Under the ADA

Learn and have fun at the same time in this audience participation session on the ADA. Faced with multiple different scenarios involving the top issues employers experience, such as leave as an accommodation and the “direct threat” analysis under the ADA, the audience will “choose their own adventures” by selecting answers among several options. As the adventure develops, the right answers will be revealed (and likely debated). 

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand the implications of leave as an accommodation scenario
  • Analyze “direct threat” issues
  • Deliver creative solutions to ADA issues
