Food Allergies in the Workplace Under the ADA

Recognize and properly address food allergy and reasonable accommodation issues to prevent running afoul of the ADA.

Many employers, either because of the nature of their business - for example, those in hospitality - or because of lunch or break rooms or on-site cafeterias, must consider the issues arising from employee food allergies and the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA requires employers to not discriminate against employees with food allergies in the terms and conditions of their employment due to a disability. It also requires employers to make reasonable accommodations based on an employee's needs arising from a food allergy disability. The ADA obligations of employers take on greater significance with the increase in diagnoses of food allergies. This topic will help human resource and other employer officials to recognize and properly address food allergy and reasonable accommodation issues to prevent running afoul of the ADA and often parallel state laws.
