From medical record confidentiality to disability harassment, get a succinct overview of – and guidance to satisfy – your agency’s legal requirements regarding employees with mental disabilities, including the ADA Amendments Act and Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act.

You’ll head off disability discrimination claims by learning how to determine if an employee is entitled to accommodation and how to properly carry out the reasonable accommodation process. Real-life case studies illustrate practical application of the law and red-flag issues so you can proactively address potential problems. Plus, you get accommodation suggestions for specific conditions along with essential issues to consider when making accommodations decisions, illustrated with case examples.

And, because this resource is focused solely on mental disabilities, it’s your cost-effective and easy-to-reference tool whenever a question arises, guiding you through:

  • Determining whether a requested accommodation is an undue hardship
  • Assessing conduct issues that are safety threats
  • Storing medical information in compliance with the Rehabilitation Act
  • Evaluating whether a disability discrimination claim should be settled to avoid the risk of a high award
  • And more!
