There’s about 24 hours to go to sign up for the next free monthly webinar.  It’s set for tomorrow, Wednesday, October 14th at noon.  You can register for it here.

A few weeks ago, the EEOC released new proposed regulations interpreting the ADA Amendments Act. These proposed regulations and the Act have raised questions for employers even well-versed on disability-related issues.  Many want to know:  What disabilities are covered? How should we deal with requests for accommodations in light of the new laws and proposed regulations?

We’ll attempt to answer this and other questions in the webinar and we should have plenty of time to allow for a question-and-answer session from the attendees. 

I’m sometimes asked who this program is for. The simplest answer is that it is suitable for in-house counsel; human resources, and financial and operations personnel.  But really, it’s suitable for anyone else who needs to be up-to-date on this ever-changing area of law.

In this session, we expect to cover:

— The ADA Amendments Act
— The EEOC’s proposed regulations implementing the ADA Amendments Act
— Other state laws that employers in Connecticut should be aware of
— What actions employers should take as a result of these changes

We’ve got one of our largest crowds set for the presentation but have room for a few more people so sign up and see you online tomorrow.
