EEOC: The Mental Health Provider's Role in a Client's Request for a Reasonable Accommodation at Work

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has created a new fact sheet for mental health providers, "The Mental Health Providers Role in a Clients Request for a Reasonable Accommodation at Work." This fact sheet explains to mental health providers that their clients may be able to get reasonable accommodations that help to avoid problems at work related to their conditions. It also answers questions about when a client has the right to obtain a reasonable accommodation; the types of accommodations that may be available; the kind of documentation that could help the client obtain an accommodation; and the importance of disclosing the need for an accommodation before problems occur. The EEOC enforces federal antidiscrimination laws by investigating, conciliating, mediating, and litigating charges of employment discrimination brought by members of the public.
