Psychiatric Disabilities

What qualifies as a psychiatric disability? How is an employee’s psychiatric disability determined? What types of accommodation is an employer required to make? Which regulations, in addition to the Americans with Disabilities Act, determine the employer’s response? These are just some of the questions employers are asking in response to an increasing number of employees claiming to be psychiatrically disabled. An employer’s response used to be simpler. Today, an employee can claim to have a disability more easily, employers have an increased requirement to accommodate, and the regulations that the employer must satisfy go beyond just the ADA.


Just a sampling of the many practical tips you’ll take away:

  • Learn what constitutes a psychiatric disability.
  • Find out exactly what all the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements are, including, certifying the disability, accommodation, and period of certification.
  • How the Family and Medical Leave Act and its intermittent leave requirements fit into psychiatric accommodations.
  • How workplace safety issues should be addressed while not discriminating against the employee who has been certified with a psychiatric disability.
  • GINA considerations.
