Joshua A. Stein, a Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practice, in the firm’s New York office, was quoted in ABA Newsbytes Human Resources, in “New EEOC Guidance on Leave as a Reasonable Accommodation.” The American Bankers Association newsletter cited a client advisory Mr. Stein authored regarding the EEOC’s updated resource document on providing leave as a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Following is an excerpt:

In sum, this new publication reflects – in one document – the EEOC’s previously articulated positions regarding its view of leave as a potential accommodation under the ADA. In most instances, unpaid leave may be a reasonable accommodation that must be granted to individuals with disabilities, provided that doing so does not constitute an undue hardship for the employer.
