ADA and Leaves of Absence: What you Need to Know Including Guidance from the Recent EEOC Resource Document

On May 9, 2016 the EEOC issued a new “resource document” targeting companies who have not seemed to understand that leave of absences can and often are a reasonable accommodation under the ADA. In this “resource document,” the EEOC has focused on employers with policies that “unlawfully restrict the use of leave as a reasonable accommodation”. The EEOC contends that this indicates that employers are not understanding that leave can be a reasonable accommodation under the ADA and has caused an increase in ADA disability discrimination complaints. Thus, the EEOC in this new document helps employers understand “how to approach requests for leave as a reasonable accommodation so that employees can manage their health and employers can meet their business needs.”
