How to Protect and Accommodate Employees With Disabilities

30+ years after the American Disabilities Act, many organizations still struggle with granting reasonable accommodations. Requesting accommodation often forces individuals with disabilities to disclose private health information, putting both employees and employers in uncomfortable positions.

This episode features Hannah Olson, Co-Founder and CEO of Disclo, a tech company that helps organizations manage health disclosures and accommodation requests. Hannah shares valuable insights on:

  • Cultivating an inclusive safety culture that prioritizes privacy
  • Ensuring compliance in the face of discrimination lawsuits
  • Encouraging able-bodied individuals to educate themselves on disabilities in the workplace

Hannah also recommends the Job Accommodation Network for employees and the Disability Management Employer Coalition for organizations.

The Employee Safety Podcast is hosted by Peter Steinfeld, SVP of Safety Solutions at AlertMedia.
