Record of Disability
Since Congress amended the ADA, many conditions are considered “disabilities” under the law that never made the list before. Employers may not discriminate against employees who have medical conditions requiring any accommodations to permit them to work. Even if an employee needs more time off than the allotted 12 weeks provided by the FMLA, he or she may be protected by the ADA. The only way to know for sure is to consult with a Cincinnati employment lawyer who is familiar with disability discrimination laws. You may have more rights and more protection than you think.
