A Comprehensive Guide to Overcoming Hundreds of Policy and Administration Hurdles
The EEOC is once again focusing its strategic enforcement efforts on the ADA. From barriers in hiring to employer defenses like undue hardship, direct threat, and business necessity, the EEOC will be looking at practices that screen out or adversely affect individuals with disabilities.

Last year, the EEOC continued to target leave policies that violate the ADA by denying leave as a reasonable accommodation -- one settlement was for nearly $5 million.

Don't let your organization become the next EEOC target. Learn how to comply with the latest rules and regulations with the ADA Compliance Manual. This comprehensive information system will become your most trusted source for fast, accurate, and clear solutions to managing employees with disabilities.

When you make this resource a part of your reference library, you get:

- A comprehensive guide to overcoming hundreds of policy and administration hurdles, using real-world examples and plain English. Fully current with the ADA Amendments Act and new regulations.
- A quarterly update on new regulations and court decisions that profoundly alter the way you should manage disabled employees.

ADA Compliance: Practical Solutions for HR will help you:

- Maintain an ADA-compliant hiring process
- Determine which employees are “disabled” and “qualified” under the ADA and how this has changed with the passage of the ADAAA and the issuance of new regulations
- Decide if reasonable accommodations are and aren’t required
- Comply with the ADA’s “regarded as disabled” and “record of disability” provisions, discrimination and retaliation provisions, and medical confidentiality requirements
- Manage your ADA obligations in concert with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), state workers’ comp laws, and the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)
- Reduce your risk of terminating employees who are entitled to ADA protections

Each chapter explains your ADA requirements using realistic, detailed examples to illustrate key concepts so you can troubleshoot policies and greatly reduce your exposure to disability discrimination claims.

Perfect for:
