Mental Health Concerns in the Workplace: What Managers and HR Need to Know

Claims for disability discrimination and failure to accommodate based on mental health conditions are on the rise, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has increased its enforcement actions in this arena. Employers are often in the dark about how to respond to signs of possible mental health conditions and requests for accommodations. Front line managers may not have the tools or experience needed to address a mental health concern facing an employee, not to mention how that condition may impact the broader workplace. As such, it is imperative that managers and HR professionals know how to respond to these situations to mitigate the risk of legal liability.
