Identifying and Accommodating Invisible Disabilities

Under federal and many state and local laws, employers are required to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities.

While some employee disabilities are extremely obvious (e.g., a blind employee), the definition of "disabilities" under applicable law is broad enough so that most employees who have disabilities will have disabilities that are invisible to the naked eye; yet, employers must accommodate these employees as well. In order to comply with its obligations under applicable law, employers must be able to identify employees with these invisible disabilities and provide reasonable accommodations to them so that such employees can perform the essential functions of their job. This topic will apprise employers of their legal obligations to provide reasonable accommodations to disabled employees, provide employers with tools to identify employees who may have invisible disabilities, and teach employers how to engage in the interactive process so that a reasonable accommodation is offered to such employees.
