Bloomberg BNA Daily Labor Report

Frank C. Morris, Jr., a Member of the Firm in the Litigation and Employee Benefits practices, in the firm’s Washington, DC, office, was quoted in Bloomberg BNA Daily Labor Report, in “Job Accommodations Usually Cheap, but Cost Limits Untested,” by Patrick Dorrian.

Following is an excerpt:

Federal courts seem to be going with the EEOC’s view, said Frank C. Morris Jr. of Epstein Becker & Green in Washington. That may conflict with the ADA’s original intent, he told Bloomberg BNA.

“You could argue that some of the recent court decisions have gone further than the framers of the ADA intended in holding that an accommodation’s cost doesn’t show undue hardship unless it would essentially put a company out of business,” said Morris, co-chairman of the firm's ADA and public accommodations group.
