Attendees will learn the top three ADA mistakes that lead to EEOC investigations, as well as best practices and policies for avoiding such mistakes. 

Recently, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has pursued “vigorous enforcement” of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), resulting in record-setting settlements ranging from $3.2 million to $20 million dollars. Since one ADA misstep can lead to an investigation of the employer’s entire leave practices, this often results in class-action-style lawsuits by the EEOC. Hear the perspective of an EEOC trial attorney on what red flags can lead to lawsuits, and from an ADA expert on how to avoid ADA risk.
