Webinar Recording: Behavioral Health in the Workplace – Navigating ADA Compliance and Employee Support

Jai HookerResources, Tools & Tactics Archives

As behavioral health issues become increasingly prevalent within the U.S. workforce, there’s a critical need for employers to adopt holistic strategies. Not only is it essential to sustain productivity, but it’s equally crucial to navigate the nuanced landscape of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

In this session, we took a dive deep into the delicate balance of adhering to ADA regulations while supporting employees experiencing behavioral health challenges. We unpacked the ADA essentials every employer should be familiar with, shared insights on sidestepping potential discriminatory pitfalls, and explored key court verdicts surrounding ADA compliance that specifically pertain to mental health conditions. We also discussed behavioral health from a medical standpoint by exploring red flag symptoms and discussing how certain health conditions might manifest as unusual or disruptive behaviors in the workplace.

Attendees left with the knowledge to foster a compassionate workplace that is not only compliant, but also understanding of the intricate tapestry of behavioral health.
