On May 15, 2013, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued updates to four informal “Question and Answer” guidance documents relating to protections against disability discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Each of the guidance documents, which are available on the EEOC’s website, focuses on a different condition (cancer, diabetes, epilepsy and intellectual disabilities) and, according to the EEOC, reflect changes made by the ADA Amendments Act relevant to these four specific conditions.
I am pleased to share with you our recent Client Alert on the EEOC’s guidance documents.
The Client Alert summarizes the guidance documents, including the types of reasonable accommodations the EEOC suggests should be considered by employers in working with employees with cancer, diabetes, epilepsy and intellectual disabilities.
