Equal Access/Equal Opportunity Briefings
PHASE II - Americans with Disabilities Act and the ADA Amendments Act
The Americans with Disabilities Act and the ADA Amendments Act session represents Phase II of the Equal Access/Equal Opportunity Briefing Initiative started at Purdue three years ago. Phase II focuses on the area of disabilities for two reasons. The first is due to the changes to the law brought about in 2009 that affect employers like Purdue. The second reason is 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 is a session specific to supervisors and a session for faculty and staff who do not have supervisory responsibilities. Please select the session that is appropriate for you. We are delighted you are joining us for a session.
