Special Program for Disability Employment Awareness Month
Mediations in the workplace involving employees with disabilities may -- or may not -- be about legal rights. Whatever the subject of the mediation is ? whether it's an interpersonal dispute, a conflict between employee and supervisor, or a reasonable accommodation negotiation ? it needs to be accessible to the person with a disability. Judy Cohen, Project Coordinator of the ADA Mediation Guidelines, will talk about steps employers and employees should take to make sure that employees with disabilities can fully participate in the process.
Judy Cohen is Executive Director of Access Resources, a mediation and training firm. A national leader in Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mediation, Judy has expertise in mediating issues involving people with disabilities. She is Project Coordinator of the ADA Mediation Guidelines, the first set of aspirational standards for mediation administrators and practitioners in the effective management of disputes involving people with disabilities
