One Size Does Not Fit All: Avoiding Common ADAAA Mistakes

Presented by Matthew Beatty of The Standard

Many employers recognize that they are not able to respond appropriately to current or potential ADAAA accommodation requests and need additional expertise and guidance to avoid non-compliance with the ADAAA. Others are not even aware that their policies and normal practices could run afoul of the law. This course provides brokers and human relations staff with additional information to help the employer identify potential issues that could subject the employer to disputes under the ADAAA.

Join us for CFAHU Happy Hour at Marlow’s 1008 S. Orlando Ave, Winter Park (across from the Krispy Kreme on 17-92) from 5-8pm on Thursday, March 2.
$20 includes 2 drink tickets and appetizers.
Contact Susan Zegke-Donahue if you’re interested in sponsoring. RSVP here if you will attend.
