WASHINGTON -- The EEOC Training Institute and the Washington Field Office (WFO) of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will hold two Equal Employment Opportunity seminars on Monday, September 12, 2011.  They will be held at the Center for Association Leadership Eye Street Conference Center, 1575 I Street, NW, Washington, DC 20005 (ASAE).  The morning session will be on “Harassment in the Workplace.” The afternoon session, “Disability and Genetics in the Workplace: ADAAA, the Reasonable Accommodation Obligation and GINA,” will highlight important considerations to employers in understanding and implementing the law and the final regulations under the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), as well as how to provide reasonable accommodations under the ADAAA.
