Anxiety, Stress, and PTSD: HR’s ADA Accommodation and Performance Management Roadmap - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to address performance and ADA accommodation issues concerning employees with anxiety disorder, PTSD, and other mental health issues.

While it’s generally pretty straightforward when HR must accommodate an employee with a physical disability, it can be another story figuring out how to accommodate and manage employees who suffer from anxiety, stress, or PTSD in the workplace. When must you accommodate these employees under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)? Also, if you provide leave as an accommodation, how long do you keep an employee’s job open? And, what if your workplace is the cause of the worker’s stress or anxiety? Perhaps most crucially, what should you do when you suspect a mental condition is affecting an employee’s job performance?

Mental disabilities may not be as readily apparent as physical ones, so your obligations to provide reasonable accommodations for conditions such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and stress are not always clear-cut. But, legally, your responsibilities are the same.

 Use this on-demand webinar on this complicated and important issue. Our speakers, an experienced employment law attorney and nationally recognized authority on the ADA and a licensed social worker specializing in depression, anxiety, career and life transitions, will cover requests for reasonable accommodation and provide strategies for dealing with performance issues relating to anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and more.

 Don’t miss this all-new webinar that will teach you how to manage accommodation requests related to workers with anxiety, stress, and PTSD that will answer pressing questions like:

  • How can we use signs of depression and stress as potential indicators of employees considering violence against themselves or others?
  • How can organizations improve employee wellness by helping them manage stress or get access to Employee Assistance Program (EAP) providers? 

You’ll learn:

  • Symptoms employees with mental health disorders may exhibit—including major depressive, bipolar, and anxiety disorders, such as PTSD, OCD, and panic disorder
  • When anxiety disorder, PTSD, and other mental health disorders are protected under the ADA
  • Types of workplace accommodations a doctor may recommend for someone undergoing treatment for anxiety or other mental conditions
  • Questions to consider when addressing the limitations an employee with a mental health disorder may be experiencing
  • What medical documentation you may legally ask for regarding a mental health-related disability before determining if an accommodation request should be granted 
  • Examples of common accommodations that may be possible for employees with mental health disorders—and when a requested accommodation would likely be deemed an undue hardship
  • Legal trouble spots to watch for when denying a request for accommodation or disciplining an employee with a mental health disorder
  • What to do if an employee has a panic attack while at work—or claims he or she can’t report to work because of one
  • Types of leave that could be required under the ADA or FMLA due to mental health impairments, such as PTSD, depression, or anxiety 
  • Strategies for ensuring a healthy workplace design that provides adequate mental health resources and stress-management resources to the workforce
