ADA

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination and harassment against qualified employees and applicants with disabilities, plus requires "reasonable accommodations" under certain circumstances. Reasonable accommodations are adjustments or modifications provided by an employer to enable people with disabilities to enjoy equal employment opportunities. Reasonable accommodation may include, but is not limited to making existing facilities used by employees readily accessible to, and usable by, persons with disabilities, or offering job restructuring, modifying work schedules, or reassignment to a vacant position.

Affirmative Action / EEO

Bringing diversity to your workplace is not just a legal obligation, but makes good business sense. With the advent of social media and wide internet usage, organizations can afford now less than ever to develop a reputation of being discriminatory against minorities. At a bare minimum, your organization needs an equal opportunity policy statement. However, to make sure your organization will be perceived as socially responsible and be in accordance with the law, you need to do more: a comprehensive situational analysis and planning of how you can overcome a less than diverse workforce. A well-established reporting system for discriminatory behavior is also an absolute must. Get more information on Affirmative Action / EEO.

Disability / Leave Mgt.

Leave of Absence can take many forms. Some of these leaves are paid while others are unpaid. A solid and clearly spelled-out leave plan gives organizations the ability to guard against alleged discrimination while being able to give employees time off when necessary so that the overall performance of such leavers will be better in the long run. Furthermore, some leaves are mandated by legislation such as the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA). Almost one fourth of employees will suffer a disabling injury – oftentimes on the job. Because of this risk, employer-provided disability insurance makes good business sense. HR managers need to know who to prepare for absentees so that the workflow is not compromised. Get more information on Disability / Leave Mgt..
