Legal Issues Concerning Employees with Psychiatric Illness - Webinar

  • ID: 4755605
  • Webinar
  • 90 Minutes
  • World Compliance Seminar
1 of 5
The principles prohibiting discrimination in the workplace under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other applicable laws originated with both physical and psychiatric disabilities in mind; however, employers tend to focus more on the physical disabilities. According to a 2013 study by the National Alliance on Mental Illness, an estimated 61. 5 million Americans have experienced mental health impairment in a given year. That number, if anything, continues to rise. This webinar will discuss the employment rights of persons with psychiatric disabilities and conversely the employer's responsibilities toward those employees under the ADA and other applicable laws, with emphasis on workplace accommodations and discuss issues that arise including:
  • How the broadened definition of disability under the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) affects individuals with psychiatric disabilities
  • Determining when a person with a psychiatric disability is qualified for a job
  • Common workplace issues involving persons with psychiatric disabilities
  • Applicable case examples
  • Identifying when safety issues or concerns arise and how the concept of direct threat may apply
  • Resources for both employers and employees, among many others
