About The Event

This 4-hr training will address both the legal and psychological issues that often arise while dealing with Psychiatric Disabilities at Work. You will learn to deal with sensitive and challenging scenarios and directly address mental health problems with managers and employees.

Why Should You Attend:

The recent amendments to the A.D.A. have a significant impact on the rights of mentally employees as well as the responsibilities of employers. To make matters more confusing, the A.D.A., the F.M.L.A., and worker’s comp can intersect, or supersede, each other when it comes to dealing with psychiatric disabilities.

This intermediate to advanced, 4 hour workshop will enable HR professionals to navigate the difficult and often murky challenge of dealing with "invisible disabilities."

This practical workshop address both the legal and psychological issues that often arise, such as confidentiality, fitness for duty evaluations, relevant laws, drug testing, the relationship between conduct problems and mental illness, and how to directly address mental health problems with managers and employees.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • Discover how conduct problems intersect with mental illness.
  • Learn what to a depressed employee.
  • Identify what protection alcoholics and substance abusers have under the A.D.A.
  • Learn what constitutes a psychiatric disability.
  • Find out exactly what all the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements are, Including, certifying the disability, accommodation, and period of certification.
  • Learn how the Family and Medical Leave Act and its intermittent leave requirements fit into psychiatric accommodations.
  • Understand how worker's comp relates to stress, anxiety and other mental illnesses.
  • Learn how workplace safety issues should be addressed while not discriminating against the employee who has been certified with a psychiatric disability.
