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. We will review current case law and agency rules to help identify legal risks and develop best practices as you navigate this ever-expanding area of the law.

Key Topics

•    Defining Disability Under Various Statutes
•    Assessing Essential Functions
•    Providing Reasonable Accommodations
•    When and How to Make Disability-Related Inquiries or Require Medical Exams
•    Leave as an Accommodation
•    Evaluating Health and Safety Issues
•    Addressing Drug and Alcohol Problems
•    Addressing Psychiatric Disabilities
•    Understanding the Interaction between the ADA and GINA
