Presented by:  Haley E. Kurisky, Attorney - Jackson Lewis P.C.

Mental health and mental health disabilities are at the forefront of employees’ minds in today’s society.  But for these harder-to-see disabilities, how does an employer know when they are on “notice” that they must enter into the interactive process.

If an employee says they’re feeling anxious, does that trigger an employer’s duty to act?  We will discuss with recent caselaw and examples as well as talk through strategies for accommodation.

Participant Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the legalities of the Americans with Disabilities Act and employers’ duties under the Act
  • Discuss the boundaries of what is a “mental health disability”
  • Strategize methods of accommodation for mental health disabilities
