Accommodating Invisible Disabilities


Invisible disabilities include conditions that cannot be directly observed. An employee dealing with a major depressive disorder struggling to get out of bed in the morning. A staff member agonized with chronic pain unable to stand for long periods of time. An intern experiencing debilitating migraines from the sheen of computer screens and fluorescent lights. The Americans with Disabilities Act requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations for employees with known disabilities, and these include invisible disabilities.

But this statute brings with it a lot of gray area, and many questions. What exactly constitutes a reasonable accommodation? And when does it cross a line? How can you accommodate an invisible disability while still remaining fair to other employees?

In this valuable webinar, we will discuss and learn about invisible disabilities as well as employer responsibility. Examine how to determine different methods and types of accommodations as well as how to develop an overall more inclusive workplace. The agriculture industry is already a great place to work, and learning how to better accommodate those with invisible disabilities will foster growth and contribute to greater success.
