Description:

This session will address the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) new resource document on this subject, published December 2016, as well as its companion document on the role of mental health providers in their clients requests for reasonable accommodation. The discussion will include:

  • Common mental health conditions and their symptoms
  • Application of the "regarded as" prong of the definition of "disability" under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in claims of disparate treatment based on a mental health condition
  • Triggers for the interactive process and fitness for duty examinations
