American workers can offer great amounts of skill and knowledge, and in order to compete in the global economy businesses must be able to tap this resource. This includes being able to hire and integrate the millions of Americans who live with disabilities. Approximately 1 in 5 working age individuals in this country have a disability, and more than half of those are unemployed. This could be from a number of reasons, including the employer-held belief that individuals with disabilities would not make good employees, that there must be uniformity in the workplace, and other fears and concerns often based on unfair stereotypes. However, the ADA, or Americans with Disabilities Act, enables individuals with disabilities to be better protected as both prospective and current employees.
So what standard is needed to be considered a person with a disability, and how does the employer need to accommodate these persons? Learn the answers to these questions in this Video On Demand course. Ultimately, even if you are regarded as having a disability, yet do not actually have one, the ADA may protect you. This video also teaches you about how the ADA affects the hiring of, and maintaining, disabled employees. Utilize the material presented here to understand the ADA and create a more equal workplace.
