Migraine Headaches in the Workplace


Interesting court case involving migraine headaches: A lady who suffered from severe and debilitating migraine headaches resulting from a co-worker's perfume in the workplace sued her employer for a failure to accommodate her needs with a no-perfume policy. She sued under the Americans with Disabilities Act and won her case!

SSDI claimants suffering from migraine headaches should notify their employer if their migraines in the workplace result from coworkers' scented items such as perfumes or deodorants. Claimants should also notify their doctors of any symptoms and be sure to keep their medical records up to date.
