Last week, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has released its final regulations to implement the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA). In this week’s installment of The Proactive Employer Podcast, we’ll be talking about the final regulations – and what they mean for employers – with Sheridan Walker. Ms. Walker is the President of HirePotential, a leading national consulting and staffing firm delivering end-to-end services to corporations, assisting them with OFCCP compliance, employment, accommodations, accessibility, recruitment and retention of the untapped workforce. She is an expert in the disability field with 25 years of broad-based experience. Ms. Walker has served on the National Disability Mentoring Day Committee for Colorado and the President’s Task Force on the Employment of People With Disabilities. We’ll be discussing how the new regulations will impact employers, emphasizing what employers need to know about accommodation and accessibility. We’ll also be talking about some societal shifts in the perception of individuals with disabilities, and talk about some practical ways employers can incorporate this largely untapped workforce into their organization.
