Migraine Disease in the Workplace


Understand the ADA's interactive process specific to employees who require accommodations relating to migraine disease.

Migraine disease is one of the most common medical conditions giving rise to requests for Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave, reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and other various state and federal laws. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most misunderstood. This topic will focus on employers' obligations with respect to migraine disease under the FMLA and ADA, specifically including reasonable accommodations and intermittent FMLA leave. This information will also cover how to manage employees suffering from migraine disease, as well as the impact an employee missing work due to migraine disease can have on the surrounding workforce.
