Upcoming Webcasts in Accommodation and Compliance Series

The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) holds webcasts each month with experts covering a wide range of topics related to disability employment, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and job accommodations. All sessions are free and are available remotely on Zoom. Following are their offerings for September and October:

On September 22, 2022 from 2 to 3 pm ET, the webcast on “Accommodation Solutions for Sleep Disorders,” will be “an informative and interactive session,” providing specific examples from JAN to stimulate thinking and questions from attendees. Employees and employers contact JAN for guidance on sleep issues, whether the disorder is related to too much sleep and being unable to wake up, falling asleep without control, a lack of sleep, or other issues that “compound cognitive difficulties.” Click here for more information or to register for “Accommodation Solutions to Sleep Disorders.”

On October 13, 2022 from 2 to 3 pm ET, the session focuses on “Building a Disability Inclusive Organization.” Those attending will explore how to create a workplace that is “disability-inclusive” while meeting diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) goals, looking into what are the core elements of an inclusive work environment, discussing practical strategies that have been developed with input from a variety of employers with outstanding track records in employing individuals with disabilities. This collaborative training is provided by JAN and the Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN). Find out additional details and register here for “Building a Disability-Inclusive Organization.”
