Americans with Disabilities Act and the ADA Amendments Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act and the ADA Amendments Act session represents the Equal Access/Equal Opportunity Briefing Initiative started at Purdue three years ago. This session focuses on the area of disabilities. The first area focuses on the changes to the law brought about in 2009 that affect employers like Purdue. The second area focuses on the increased number of individuals with disabilities in our workforce. Purdue wants to ensure that we treat all individuals that are a part of our faculty and staff equitably and respectfully. Due to the changes in the area of disabilities, there are two sessions offered.  One is a session specific to supervisors and the other session is for faculty and staff who do not have supervisory responsibilities. Please select the session that is appropriate for you.

Briefing sessions are 90 minutes in length and limited to 40 participants per session.

Other Education/Training Opportunities

Child Sexual Abuse Prevention and Response

This session is to educate faculty, staff, and students on their responsibilities regarding sexual harassment and child sexual abuse; to familiarize faculty, students, and staff with University policy and practices focusing on sexual harassment and child sexual abuse; and to foster safe and respectful University environments to better protect students, faculty and staff from incidents of sexual harassment and abuse.

Risk Management Employment Claims Initiative

The Risk Management Employment Claims Initiative supports employees and supervisors in understanding employment related issues such as the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and other University leave policies, overtime rates, discrimination, harassment, and disability awareness and accommodations.  Participation in this program helps units meet the criteria for the new insurance deductible reduction offered by Risk Management.  Participants will complete four training modules and corresponding certification quizzes.  For more information please visit the Risk Management Employment Claims Initiative website.
