Conducting Performance Discussions with Employees with Disabilities (1 hour)

Disability Etiquette training is recommended as a prerequisite

This targeted workshop gives clarity and confidence to supervising professionals in preparation for and during performance reviews with employees with disabilities. Participants will receive a concise review of the essentials of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), including key terms and considerations such as essential job functions and the interactive process for determining reasonable accommodations. Through the use of mini-lectures and case studies, participants will be able to:

  • address conduct issues and performance improvement plans with confidence
  • navigate the disclosure of a disability during a performance discussion and engage internal and/or external resources at appropriate times
  • manage what to do when performance does not improve
