EEOC Explains Rights for Employees with Certain Mental Health Conditions

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has published a document explaining the workplace rights and protections under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) available to employees and job applicants who have mental health conditions. Titled, “Depression, PTSD, & Other Mental Health Conditions in the Workplace: Your Legal Rights,” the resource, which is in a user-friendly question-and-answer format, also serves as a reminder to employers of the actions against such individuals that are considered discriminatory and illegal under the ADA.
