Four generations fill today's workforce. Each generation has its own perspectives and perceptions regarding disability. This session will focus on how each generation's perspectives and perceptions of disability affect those with accommodations. The ADA, Wisconsin Fair Employment Act and EEOC Enforcement Guidance will be covered as well as emerging accommodations with issues such as depression, anxiety and Alzheimer's.


Understand current federal and state law related to accommodations in the workplace, including the differences in application of state versus federal law, with an emphasis on the practical effect of how appeals courts are interpreting the expansion of disability and accommodation requirements from the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act.
