Mental Illness, ADAAA, and the Workplace: Taking

Edupliance announces webinar titled, “Mental Illness, ADAAA, and the Workplace: Taking Responsibility as an Employer” that aims to update attendees on mental illness as a covered disability under the ADA and how the management must engage in an interactive process with their employees exhibiting the signs of mental illness while creating a stigma-free workplace that is centered on the well-being of its employees’ physical and mental health. The event goes LIVE on Friday, October 6, from 01:00 PM to 02:30 PM, EST / 10 AM to 11:30 AM PST.

In 2016, the EEOC resolved 5000 disability based claims dealing with mental health conditions costing employers approximately $20 million. With the increase in claims came a newly released EEOC Guidance on Mental Health Discrimination which is addressed to employees informing them of their employment rights under the ADA. Workplaces can and should play a significant role in minimizing their employees’ mental health risks. Employee stress levels continue to rise as more and more employees spend more and more hours at work without an increase in pay or benefits. Burnout and depression, particularly to millennials and millennial women are reported more than any other generation.

The 90-minute webinar will be conducted by Dr. Susan Strauss who is a national and international speaker, trainer, consultant and a recognized expert on workplace and school harassment and bullying. She conducts harassment and bullying investigations and functions as an expert witness in harassment and bullying lawsuits. She has helped clients from all industries whether they be business, education, healthcare, law, and government organizations from both the public and private sector. Dr. Strauss has conducted research, written over 30 books, book chapters, and journal articles on harassment, bullying, and related topics. Susan has a doctorate in organizational leadership. She is a registered nurse, has a bachelor’s degree in human services and counseling, a master’s degree in community health, and professional certificate in training and development. She has been involved in the harassment and bullying arena since 1985.

Webinar attendees will learn:

• Find out the signs of mental illnesses and bust the myths around them

• How to minimize liability based on the American Disabilities Act recognizing mental illness as a disability

• Details about depression, anxiety, and a variety of personality disorders to help the participant have a better understanding about mental illness and the organization’s role in supporting their mentally ill employees
