In this interactive session, we will discuss the law as well as the new regulations just published by the EEOC. We will walk through the change in focus - from whether a person is an individual with a disability to the obligations on employers. The EEOC and the Courts will be more concerned with the employer's actions and reactions than the medical information regarding any employee or applicant. Attend this lab and be prepared for this dramatic change.
