This webinar is designed to help employers in the retail industry identify and navigate the increasingly prevalent and often difficult issues that arise when employees need time away from work or request workplace accommodations in connection with a mental illness. During this session, presenters will discuss best practices for handling accommodation requests received from employees suffering from mental illness, with special attention to engaging in interactive processes, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA). In addition, the discussion will include answers to the following questions:

  • What should an employer do if it suspects that one of its employees is suffering from a mental illness that may be impacting the employee’s behavior or performance?

  • How do employers balance the rights of other workers with those of mentally disabled employees who engage in disruptive or violent behavior?
  • How far must an employer go to accommodate an employee’s mental disability or limitation?
  • How should an employer manage workplace misconduct by mentally ill employees?

  • How do the employee’s rights under the ADAAA interact with his or her rights under the FMLA?
