NEHRA's Webinar Series

The Job Application Process and Disabilities: What HR Practitioners Need to Know

 

 

Program Overview:

You know about ADA, ADAA and FMLA, and how they apply to your employees, but have you thought about and planned for your candidates with disabilities? People with disabilities are among the highest population of unemployed Americans, and yet many are qualified to do the jobs we advertise. What stands in their way? Sometimes, it is our process itself. This workshop will give you practical advice on anticipating needs candidates with disabilities might have, and how you can be ready to ensure your process is fair and equitable.

You will:
Learn how the Cincinnati layover test and the sparkle! factor are probably influencing your process
Understand how to prep your hiring managers
Create a list of things to think about in your process (job coaches, interpreters, videos)
Get motivated to partner with agencies who have great candidates
