The Rehabilitation Act and ADA are complicated and create many difficult issues for individuals trying to apply disability law in their agencies. In particular, direct threat is a topic that can be confusing due to the potential liability for disability discrimination. This engaging webinar will teach you how to lawfully assess whether an employee with a disability poses a direct threat to safety and whether reasonable accommodation can address that concern.
Experienced EEO attorneys Gary Gilbert and Deryn Sumner will discuss how the medical diagnoses of a particular mental condition doesn't automatically render an individual a threat to his own safety or the safety of others in the workplace.
Major Content Areas:
- Defining direct threat
- How reasonable accommodation can reduce or eliminate a direct threat
- Requests for medical information
- Ordering fitness for duty examinations
- Case examples of physical and mental disabilities that do/don’t pose a direct threat
- And much more!
