Does an Employee Have An ADA ‘Disability’if it Substantially Limits The Major Life Activity of ‘Working’?

 

Ever since the amendments to the Americans with Disability Act took effect in 2009, management-side employment lawyers have preached to clients that they should focus more on accommodating a disability rather than whether an employee has a disability in the first place.

But, what if you have an employee who seeks an accommodation — time off — for a condition that she claims impacts her ability to work?

Hmmm…

This is the elevator-speech set of facts from this Sixth Circuit opinion from last...

Why Holocaust Remembrance Matters Now More Than Ever

 

Every year, I write a blog for SHRM on Holocaust Remembrance.   

This year, Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) is next week on May 2, 2019.

This year, we are posting the blog early. Reason: so HR has time to consider some sort of Holocaust commemoration.

During the Holocaust, more than 11 million human beings were systematically murdered.  Plus, millions more died in battle. That includes American, British and other brave military forces that sacrificed their lives to save the lives of others.

Of course, every life is a universe. Every...

#Nextchat: What Would You Do with More Time?

 

Do you feel like some of the time you spend at work is being wasted? You’re not alone! As it turns out, many employees could probably get their jobs done in shorter workdays, but inefficient processes, interruptions, meetings and other daily distractions hamper the ability to focus and to complete the work that needs to get done.

Helping a Good Employee Who Hits a Rough Patch

...

 

One of our employees, who has been a steady, solid performer the last two years, suddenly erupted in anger at one of our clients during a company event. Granted, the client is difficult and the event had all of us stressed out, but that’s no excuse to lose one’s temper and get into a shouting match. We immediately suspended him without pay.

Since then we’ve learned from coworkers that he’s dealing with stress by drinking. What should we consider as we try to decide whether to fire him or let
