ABSTRACT
Interpretive guidelines from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) indicate that health care employers face substantial liability risks from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The EEOC recognizes that health care workers face unique physical challenges on the job. • Health care workers are nearly twice as likely to be injured in the workplace as other workers. • Employers may have to bear the costs of a reasonable accommodation. • The EEOC urges health care employers to be judicious when assessing a disabled worker's potential threat to patient safety.
