EEOC: Rights of Job Applicants and Employees with Mental Health Conditions

This webinar session will discuss the current findings in EEOC data revealing that charges of discrimination based on mental health conditions are on the rise. During Fiscal year 2016, preliminary data shows EEOC resolved almost 5000 charges of discrimination based on mental health conditions, obtaining approximately $20 million for individuals with mental health conditions who were unlawfully denied employment and reasonable accommodations.

“Many people with common mental health conditions have important protections under the ADA,” said EEOC Chair Jenny R. Yang. “Employers, job applicants and employees should know that mental health conditions are no different than physical health conditions under the law. In our recent outreach to veterans who have returned home with service-connected disabilities, we have seen the need to raise awareness about these issues.”
