2019 Tools & Tactics Webinar: The 3 C’s of ADA – Consistency, Compliance, and Communication

DMECTools & Tactics, Webinars

Thursday, Mar. 7

9:00 am PT | 12:00 pm ET

The Americans with Disabilities (ADA) process can be a daunting experience, even for the most experienced companies. This webinar will equip all professionals — from those just getting started to those with established programs — with the right tools to ensure a robust program. Consistent policies, which are effectively communicated, can drive compliance and improve the employee experience.

This session will help employers understand the impact of the “3 C’s” throughout the ADA process: consistency, compliance, and communication. You will gain a thorough understanding of each component and how it relates to the accommodation process, as well as practical tips and tools for application. We will explore best practices for recognizing a person’s need for accommodation, responding to a request, understanding your time frames, and defining each parties’ responsibilities.
