It just got easier to comply with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Specially designed to serve the practical needs of small business owners and managers who can't afford high-powered lawyers to interpret the ADA's provisions, this penetrating new handbook shows exactly how to meet the ADA's guidelines on hiring and employing--easily and economically. Complying with the ADA begins by discussing key provisions, focusing on who is protected, and specifying the many employment areas where discrimination is prohibited. This includes: job application procedures, compensation, and sick leave. The book provides real-world examples of actions by owners and managers that illustrate precisely what acts are prohibited, then it shows, step-by-step, how to comply with the law while meeting bottom-line objectives. Using this book, you'll learn the way to satisfy the ADA's provisions and your objectives, including:
* 15 steps that ensure full compliance and enable you to develop a model company policy
* Proven strategies that help you meet the ADA's guidelines in every major area--from interviewing and testing, to routine management
* Advice on economically making the workplace accessible under the ADA's sweeping concept of "reasonable accommodation"
Along the way, Complying with the ADA provides you with thorough checklists of do's and don'ts, sample job applications, model job descriptions, resource lists, and dozens of other practical ideas. Complying with the ADA will do more than just alert you to your liability. It will assist you in capitalizing on the potential of the qualified group of "disabled" Americans. With this book as your guide, you'll see that complying with the ADA is more than obeying the law--it's good business.
