Full course description

Discrimination against individuals based on a disability is prohibited under federal and state laws in all sectors, including the private sector. In this training, we take a look at several high-profile cases of businesses that refused to hire a qualified individual with a disability and accommodate an employee with a disability. Professionals will learn about these issues so that they can respond to such issues in order to prevent them from happening again. The CRCC code of professional ethics will be included in this discussion.
