"Invisible” Disabilities and the ADA

Wednesday, July 12, 2023
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time Zone


When someone has a non-apparent disability, such as diabetes, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, asthma, mental illness or HIV/AIDS, it frequently can raise unique issues for both the employer and the employee. This session will review the legal issues, EEOC guidance and court decisions when "invisible" disabilities are at issue, including pre-employment inquiries and medical examinations, workplace disclosure, reasonable accommodations and confidentiality.
