The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has issued a new hiring guide for following the rules of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The guide is primarily for federal employers and contractors, but the advice can be applied by any employer that has questions such as:
- When advertising jobs, what’s an appropriate statement indicating our policies on ADA accommodations?
- How should we respond to applicants who ask about accommodations?
- How do we decide which accommodations present an “undue hardship” on our business?
- What do we do if we think an applicant’s or employee’s disability presents a health or safety hazard to that employee or co-workers?
