Human Resource Management and the Americans with Disabilities Act

By John G. Veres III; Ronald R. Sims | Go to book overview
Consider designating someone to serve as the company's ADA information specialist.
Review all pre-employment programs; eliminate pre-employment offer, medically related questions, and/or tests.
Determine if postoffer medical exams should be required for any jobs. Work with medical personnel to develop a format that will give you the information you need to make a fair placement decision.
Review existing contracts and leases, including collective bargaining agreements.
Conduct a self-audit of possible accommodations that your company could provide to a disabled employee.
Develop policies and procedures for reasonable accommodation; inform employees and applicants of their responsibility to let you know that they need accommodation.
Review return-to-work policies for newly disabled employees to ensure that accommodations are considered.
Document any accommodations made, as well as hiring and termination decisions.
Consider meeting with advocacy groups for individuals with disabilities to obtain advice and assistance ( Nichols, 1992).
