Hi Everyone,

Today, I thought I would pass along two items that might be of interest to you:

Helen Hayes Hospital in West Haverstraw, NY is hosting Gary Karp to speak on Wednesday, April 4 (tomorrow!) at 5:30 pm. This is a FREE presentation! Gary is an internationally recognized public speaker, corporate trainer, facilitator, author and editor. He has been living – fully – with a T12 spinal cord injury since 1973 when he was injured in a fall from a tree at the age of 18.  Gary’s presentation will offer up insights and lessons on the nature of how we cope with trauma, the cultural assumptions that influence our view of disability, radical changes in mobility and public access since his injury, and much, much more. You can get more details at www.helenhayeshospital.org. I think this will be a great program. I will be going – hope to see you there!

Another program also offered tomorrow, Wednesday, April 4 is a FREE online webinar hosted by the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). It will start at 1:30 pm and last for 75 minutes. You can register using this link: https://event.on24.com/eventRegistration/EventLobbyServlet?target=registration.jsp&eventid=415134&sessionid=1&key=D36B986C4EDF55780AD867C904920B91&partnerref=editordistro&sourcepage=register

The EEOC Speaks: Reasonable Accommodation Under the ADAAA
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to get answers to your reasonable accommodation questions directly from EEOC Commissioners. During this webinar, Commissioners Chai Feldblum and Victoria Lipnic will discuss an employer’s duty to provide reasonable accommodation to individuals with disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended by the ADAAA. In addition to addressing questions submitted in advance of the session, they will cover:

  • Who is entitled to a reasonable accommodation?
  • When must an employer engage in the interactive process?
  • Employer obligations regarding:
    • job restructuring
    • modified work schedules or locations
    • leave
    • reassignment
  • What is required for an employer to show undue hardship?

I hope you take advantage of one or both of these programs! Please pass information along to anyone who might be interested. Thanks!
