Description:

Like it or not, compliance with regulations in one area of the law may open you up to potential liability in another. That is one of the challenges employers face when they attempt to comply with the safety regulations promulgated under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) and meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations.

For example, let's say you terminate an employee who has consistently failed to operate his forklift in a safe manner despite repeated warnings and training. What you may not know is that a protected medical condition is behind his poor performance. This means you may have a duty to work toward a reasonable accommodation instead of showing him the door. The mistake is understandable, but it can be costly. In your attempt to improve safety, you’ve gone and made a case for the ADA to step in.

Also, the manner in which an injury or illness is recorded or how an investigation for recordkeeping purposes is conducted might leave an organization vulnerable to disability discrimination claims if it wasn't careful to protect the disabled worker's privacy rights.

Join us when our presenters, skilled OSHA and labor and employment attorneys, will review employee accommodation requirements under the ADA, strategies to make sure both safety programs and ADA policies and procedures are aligned in areas such as return-to-work, drug and alcohol use, and modified work, and legal approaches for compliant OSHA recordkeeping.

You'll learn:

  • What the ADA requires for disability accommodation—and how to balance your legal obligations against legitimate safety concerns
  • What to do when you suspect a protected health condition is a factor in an employee’s poor safety performance
  • How the ADA can affect your return-to-work and modified duty policies and procedures
  • What factors an employer should consider in developing a disciplinary program for safety infractions
  • How to handle the tricky issue of employee drug and alcohol use in an ADA-compliant manner
  • How to ensure compliant injury and illness recordkeeping while addressing the privacy rights of employee's
  • And more!

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
