    Southern New Mexico SHRM (SNMSHRM) is pleased to announce this month’s upcoming webinar, What We Should Be Telling Our Managers About the ADA, But May Not Be. Meeting information: Thursday, April 8, 2021, from 11:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  (the link will open at 11:30 a.m. for those that might want to network before the meeting starts.  From 11:45 until approximately 11:50 we will have announcements and then the presentation will start immediately after the announcements). 

    This webinar will be presented by Rodney Klein. Rodney graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and was hired by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as an Investigator in 1992. Mr. Klein investigated individual complaints of employment discrimination, along with large class and systemic cases. He worked as a liaison between the EEOC and various fair employment practice agencies. And, he was the San Antonio Office’s Charge Receipt Supervisor, responsible for receiving and processing all incoming discrimination complaints. Currently, Mr. Klein is the Dallas District’s Outreach and Training Manager. He speaks to audiences about employment related matters, the civil rights statutes, and EEOC procedures, and he is a featured speaker at his office’s yearly training seminar for employers.

    Presentation Summary: Most organizations don’t let individual managers control the interactive process. Human resources controls this process and rightly so, as they are their organizations ADA subject matter experts. So it follows that most ADA training is given to human resources staff and not individual managers. Unfortunately, this can have negative consequences, as managers sometimes violate the ADA because they haven’t been fully trained in their legal responsibilities. So, in this session we will discuss the parts of the ADA a good manager should know leave out the parts better left to human resources. We will cover hiring, qualification standards and supervising employees with disabilities.
