The EEOC Provides ADA Guidance on Specific Conditions

June 2013
Employment Law Notes
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently issued four new “Question and Answer” documents that address how the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) relates specifically to diabetes, epilepsy, intellectual disabilities, and cancer. These documents provide clear answers to common employer questions about hiring and accommodating employees with one or more of these conditions. They also offer various concrete examples showing how to apply the ADA to specific scenarios.
