Course Description

Length: 1h 0min    Published: 4/7/2021    
The Americans with Disabilities Act requires companies to provide effective communication to those with disabilities. A failure to do so can lead to a disability discrimination cause of action under the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act, and the Affordable Care Act. What exactly qualifies as "effective communication" is determined on a case by case basis. This program takes a close look at what does and does not constitute effective communication in a disability discrimination claim. The presentation will cover the Department of Justice's guidance concerning effective communications as well as recent decisions that are instructive on the types of evidence needed on both sides of a claim.
Learning Objectives
* Understand the effective communication requirement under the ADA
* Learn when inadequate communication can lead to a disability discrimination claim
* Understand what evidence can be brought on both sides to prove or disprove effective communication
