Description
 

Presented by Kendra Duckworth

Diabetes, fibromyalgia and asthma might not have obvious symptoms, but they -- and other "invisible" conditions -- are still disabilities, and if your agency doesn't address them properly you face potential EEO complaints.

Get firsthand guidance from Kendra Duckworth, a federal practitioner with 20 years experience providing accommodation solutions, specifically for employees with hidden disabilities.

Ms. Duckworth fills the information "black hole" created by the ADA Amendments Act's broadened definition of disability by explaining how far protections now extend and how the changes impact your agency's response. With her expert guidance you:

  • Become familiar with hidden disabilities common in the workplace, such as epilepsy and depression
  • Be able to generate ideas about how to address and accommodate whatever hidden disabilities employees present
  • Implement effective accommodation procedures, such as modifying methods for carrying out a job and obtaining equipment that addresses a specific limitation
  • Understand when and what medical documentation can be requested in connection with a non-obvious disability
  • Move your agency toward reaching diversity and inclusion goals by attracting and keeping qualified employees with disabilities through successful accommodation
