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.  

Key Topics

  • Defining Disability Under Various Statutes
  • When and How to Conduct Medical Exams
  • Providing Reasonable Accommodations
  • Evaluating Health and Safety Issues
  • Drug and Alcohol Problems: Special Issues
  • Psychiatric Disabilities: Special Issues
