P2: When Disability and Discipline Collide
Things get tricky when performance may or may not be impacted by a perceived or actual disability. Most employers are, unfortunately, familiar with employee cases where questions of disability arise toward the end of a disciplinary process. Where to start? Legal issues surrounding both discipline and disability abound, it is important to understand how the two can be intertwined legally. This training will help you navigate these issues and assist you to getting to the same goal of both the Disability Interactive Process and Progressive Discipline – for an employee’s performance standards to be met.
Learn how to manage these especially tough cases in compliance with the ADA and about specific solutions on how to proceed down the Disability Interactive Process Hallway™!
