Preventing and Defending Mental Health FMLA and ADA Claims

 

Learn how to determine if a mental health condition constitutes a serious health condition under FMLA and/or a disability under the ADA.

The rapid rise of mental health issues from employees and applicants now confront employers with a variety of complex FMLA and ADA issues and potential claims. Increasing diagnoses of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, seasonal affective disorder, bipolar disorder, and similar disorders pose many challenges for employers trying to navigate the often-turbulent waters of the FMLA and ADA. Determining when a mental health condition constitutes a serious health condition under FMLA and/or a disability under the ADA is often neither obvious nor instinctive. Knowing how to identify a covered condition is, of course, only the starting point. Next, employers need to be sure they have the right FMLA and ADA policies in place. Then there is the critical point at which the employer's policies must be applied to often times convoluted factual settings. This topic will provide the tools for employers to assure they have the necessary policies and guidance on addressing their significant FMLA and ADA obligations while not unduly affecting productivity and placing unwarranted and unfair burdens on those who work with an employee with FMLA- and/or ADA-covered mental health issues. In so doing, employers will have the ability to avoid or successfully defend mental health-based FMLA and ADA claims.
