When Is Cancer a Workplace Disability? What Employers Should Know (05/23/12) Jonathan R. Mook; Alan G. Rosmarin

The Americans With Disabilities Act Amendments Act expands the definition of a disability such that someone diagnosed with cancer likely would be considered disabled. Furthermore, a condition such as depression could accompany the cancer and become a disability as well. Some accommodations companies would need to provide to someone diagnosed with cancer might include reduced hours, a change in hours, or a flexible schedule; rest periods and a place to rest during the day; the ability to work from home; reassignment of nonessential job duties; modification of the office temperature; and a leave of absence under the Family and Medical Leave Act, if applicable.
