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).
- Understand the implications of leave as an accommodation scenario
- Analyze “direct threat” issues
- Deliver creative solutions to ADA issues
