Employee Work Areas and Break Rooms

02:30 PM - 04:00 PM
Registration Link
Presenters: | Debra Martins | Josh Schorr |
ADA ABA Building & Sites jobs
There is often a misconception that the ADA does not apply to Employee Only spaces, this is untrue. Exceptions do exist for Employee Work Areas, but all common use spaces need to be fully accessible, even those only serving employees. During this webinar, presenters will explain the differences between employee only areas and employee work areas and where exceptions apply. Additionally, they will cover the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for the common areas that are most often found within employee only spaces, including accessible routes, break rooms/kitchenettes, and toilet rooms. Actual technical assistance scenarios will be used to provide real-life examples and further knowledge of applying the Standard to employee only and employee work areas. This session will offer real-time captioning and Video Remote Sign Language Interpreters. Individuals will be able to submit questions in advance during the registration process. Questions may also be submitted during the live session.

Demystifying the Procurement Process

508 Communication & IT
Procurement and accessibility go together like peanut butter and jelly. Procurement is a fancy way of saying “personal shopper.” It may seem like a daunting process but with the right tools and attitude, it can be a fun experience. This webinar will provide an informative and consumable discussion on the acquisition lifecycle. In addition, there will be a particular emphasis on how accessibility fits into the lifecycle, stakeholder roles and responsibilities, and useful tools. Finally, the presenters will guide attendees through the process using a “real life scenario”, providing a foundation that can be applied to any information and communication technology (ICT) buy. Target audience is anyone involved and/or interested in accessibility, procurement, or both (i.e. everyone). Questions can be submitted in advance of the session or can be posed during the live webinar. The session will have captioning and video Sign Language Interpreter available. Questions for the speakers can be submitted in advance once you have registered for the session.
