The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, have transformed the workplace, requiring employees to handle confidential medical information, engage employees in discussions of a sensitive medical nature, and to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities. Moreover, the NJ Law Against Discrimination (LAD) affords stricter protection to persons with disabilities, so that even employees with short-term medical conditions may fall under the law’s protection. The amount of litigation under these statutes is truly staggering and the case law, ever more complicated, increases year-to-year.
