Updated Guidance Regarding Employer Accommodations for Cancer, Epilepsy, Diabetes and Intellectual Disabilities

From: National Law Review, June 5, 2013:


The Amendments to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADAAA) broadened the scope of physical or mental impairments which would be considered to be disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). On May 15, 2013 the EEOC issued four separate "informal" guidance documents relating to cancer, epilepsy, diabetes and intellectual disabilities...It is important to remember that since the ADAAA, the focus has been less on whether a condition is a disability and more on the interactive process to determine reasonable accommodations.
