One purpose of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is to prohibit employment discrimination against people with disabilities. How does the ADA affect you and your organization? Is your nonprofit covered by the ADA? (The ADA applies to “employer” who are a person engaged in an industry affecting commerce who has 15 or more employees for each working day in each of 20 or more calendar weeks in the current or preceding calendar year.”) What if you don’t have disabled employees? With the recent expansion of the ADA’s coverage, disabled individuals now make up one of the largest protected classes of employees in America. In this presentation, we’ll discuss the ADA’s requirements and how they specifically affect nonprofit employers in Georgia. The following are a few topics we’ll cover:

•Interviews & Medical Exams
•”Qualified Individual with a Disability”
•Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation
•Accessibility Requirements
•Reasonable Accommodations
