Mental Illness and the ADA - Succeeding in the Interactive Process and Direct Threat Defense

 

Must a person with an intellectual disability request a reasonable accommodation?

Generally, it is the employee’s burden to request a reasonable accommodation. However, there are no “magic words” necessary to request an accommodation. The employee need only let their employer know that an adjustment or change at work is needed for a reason related to a medical condition. With the exceptions of situations when the disability is obvious, or when the employee does not understand that they are disabled, or cannot articulate the need for an accommodation. This video reviews how to properly manage the interactive process and discusses the consequences of failure to accommodate. Our speaker also reviews how to establish the direct threat defense.
