You have an employee who mentions a recent diagnosis of Type II diabetes during her annual performance review. Now what? Disability-related discussions can be tricky for employers, HR professionals, and supervisors. Join us for an hour-long conversation about disability disclosure in the workplace. Find out more about what questions employers may and may not ask about disabilities and medical conditions, how to respond to requests for disability-related accommodations, disability disclosure during performance and conduct reviews, and managing workers who have not disclosed a hidden disability.
