Accommodating mental health
During the latest Lincoln Absence Advisor webinar, A New Focus: Mental Health, Disability and the Whole Employee, we received many questions on which accommodations work best for mental health and how to handle such a sensitive subject with your employees.
For episode 9 of this Lincoln Absence Advisor podcast, we hone in on these questions with product lead Annie Jantz, and vocational consultants Melissa Michuda and Emily Mathies. We discuss elements of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), accommodations we’ve seen used for mental health needs, and various processes and perspectives that employers should consider on this subject.
