Anyone have questions for Tina?
Lisa Bunch-Board Member
02:33:51
Does subcontractors have to comply too?
Lisa Jacob, ACCESS Board Member
02:37:18
who is responsible to monitor the sub contractors? the OFCCP or the main contractor?, since they are the one who holds the Government contract? then it is up to them to make sure that the subs are in compliance?
Karen Herson
02:38:09
If you are a small business with less than 15 employees, do you need an AAP?
Kamran Rasul
02:38:40
Great questions everyone, I will share with Tina...
Lisa Jacob, ACCESS Board Member
02:43:37
why are these tests legal?
Donna Kunk Board Member
02:44:12
do mental health issues fit under this?
Lisa Bunch-Board Member
02:47:15
If employers at some point get rid of the teleworking policy and require employees to return to work, how important is teleworking regarding reasonable accommodation?
Karen Herson
02:51:01
where is that small business guide?
Lisa Bunch-Board Member
02:51:40
Define small business as a subcontractor
Celene Chambers, WRPS
02:56:13
Good questions!
Karen Herson
02:59:20
Regarding mental health, I just wanted to point out that DOL's Office of Disability Employment Policy has a program to help with fostering a mental healthy workplace - https://askearn.org/mentalhealth/
Lisa Jacob, ACCESS Board Member
03:00:07
great info - thanks for the link Karen!
Susan Picerno
03:01:08
You are so right
Susan Picerno
03:02:36
The conditions on the form are still "significant rigt
Susan Picerno
03:03:07
Targeted?
Kamran Rasul - Board Member
03:03:12
Is there a way employers to remove the requirement for drivers' license when posting jobs? I significantly stresses out for wheelchair users or have physical limitation.
Kamran Rasul - Board Member
03:07:19
it significantly*
Lisa Jacob, ACCESS Board Member
03:08:03
Perhaps the actual job description should have something listed, such as are you able to attend multiple meetings at multiple off site locations daily (reliable transportation?) instead of a drivers license? unless they are "requiring" it when it is not really needed to do the job on the daily basis,?
Donna Kunk Board Member
03:12:51
How can people handle things to feel better about "whistle blowing"
Donna Kunk Board Member
03:20:19
thank you, Many do not feel like they have a voice.
Lizhandy Sanchez (She/Her)
03:34:32
I am with you on that, reach me after 10 AM
Laurie Holden
03:35:25
Do you document the differences in schedule or is it just on the honor system ?
Lisa Jacob, ACCESS Board Member
03:39:45
I have heard that there are businesses that are using this as an opportunity to have home based employees now be treated as "independent contractors" and avoid paying benefits to them - is this happening? Is it legal?
Lisa Bunch-Board Member
03:42:42
Do contractors use independent contractors so they don't have to count them as part of their AAP?
Michelle Bishop Gardner ACCESS TRI CITIES Board Member
03:44:19
I know there is a lot of talk about the legality of employers requiring vaccines to come back to the office. Are they allowed are they allowed to ask if you are vaccinated?
Laurie Holden
03:49:24
