Description

The past three years have seen a significant increase in ADA related lawsuits across the country. Join us as we review selected court decisions and the impact they are bound to have on several ADA fronts, including Title I Employment, Title II Public Entities, and Title III Public Accommodations.

Covered topics will include:

  • Workplace reasonable accommodations

  • Web accessibility

  • Education-related accommodations

  • Discrimination by public entities

  • Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on employers and businesses

Our presenters will discuss the practical application of ADA court decisions to everyday situations and how case law may support conflict resolution and compliance efforts.

Questions for presenters:

1 Could you include any TII PROW cases?
2 Do you have an update on the case AMERICAN COUNCIL OF THE BLIND OF METROPOLITAN CHICAGO, ANN BRASH, MAUREEN HENEGHAN, and RAY CAMPBELL V CITY OF CHICAGO
3 Could you comment on any cases related to ESAs for the workplace ?
4 Can you discuss any cases regarding Title II Correctional Facilities?
5 Besides money conflicts how did covid 19 affect the businesses and education for adults?
6 Should accommodations be reviewed annually, with an ADA disability documented as permanent? If yes, how should the review process unfold in the workplace eg in the accommodations involve external resources?
7 What specific guidance is in place for faculty in university settings with invisible disabilities to receive needed ADA accommodations and related protections? (such guidance seems scarce and some universities are very focused on student- and visible-disabilities but may shun or discriminate against faculty with invisible disabilities eg cognitive impairments because of the perception that their academic accomplishments would negate that possibility or provide an unfair advantage)
