Course Description

This course was recently refreshed in 2021 as part of the Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging Suite.

This course provides an overview of disability discrimination laws and helps supervisors navigate the process of accommodating qualified applicants and employees with disabilities. Using real case reviews, case studies of real-world situations, and role-playing, supervisors will be better prepared to recognize protected individuals, respond to requests for accommodation, engage in the interactive process, and avoid common mistakes. This course covers the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and CA regulations.

  • Define what it means to be a qualified individual living with a disability
