EEOC Clarifies Rights for Workers With Intellectual Disabilities

The #EEOC has Issued Guidance to clarify the rights of For Workers With #Intellectual #Disabilities. Because the laws surrounding worker rights and #workplace #accommodations is often confusing, in doing this, they are attempting to simplify the process. In addition to #intellectual-disabilities, the EEOC also released similar information this week addressing concerns specific to those with #cancer, #diabetes and #epilepsy. Although much is published about the #Americans-with-Disabilities-Act (ADA), the EEOC says they are often asked questions about how the #ADA specifically applies to these conditions.
