From serious diseases to common colds, employers must manage
a range of illnesses and disabilities that affect their employees. Employers
must consider liability issues, federal and state regulations, methods to
stem the spread of communicable diseases, and employee concerns and fears.
There are several laws that prohibit employment discrimination based on disability
or serious health conditions, including the Americans with Disabilities
Act (ADA), the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Family
and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA), and the Occupational
Safety and Health Act (OSH Act).
