The Great Lakes ADA Center in collaboration with the Southwest ADA Center and the ADA National Network is pleased to announce the next session in the ADA Legal Webinar Series which will be held on Wednesday, November 20, 2019. The topic is “Our Favorite Inappropriate Questions Under the ADA: Legal and Practical Considerations” featuring Diego Demaya, JD, Legal Specialist, Southwest ADA Center at ILRU.

Date: November 20, 2019

Time: 2-3:30pm Eastern Time (verify time where you are participating from)

Description: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in employment, state and local government programs, public accommodations, commercial facilities, transportation, and telecommunications. This webinar will touch on a variety of improper questions as they pertain to ADA:

* Title I (Employment)
* Title II (Public Entities)
* Title III (Public Accommodations)

Can an employer ask what a person’s disability is? Can a restaurant ask a service dog owner for a demonstration to prove they have a disability? Can a public school ask for a doctor’s note to grant a parent a reasonable accommodation when dropping off or picking up their child on the campus? Can an automobile dealership require a person to have a driver’s license in order to purchase a vehicle? When is a question merely offensive versus discriminatory? Join us as we discuss and compare questions like these as well as applicable cases and their legal considerations.

Cost: No charge

Registration: Registration required at www.ada-legal.org (http://www.ada-legal.org) (An account with our system is required and can be established at the time of registration if you don’t already have one)
