The EEOC and the DOL have released guidance on employer obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family Medical Leave Act when employees have mental health issues that interfere with their ability to work. With the recent surge in mental health problems, employers need to understand how to address employee requests for time off related to mental health conditions, and other accommodations that should be considered.


Susie Gibbons, a partner at Poyner Spruill, practices in the areas of employment compliance law, employment defense in litigation and administrative proceedings, and Affirmative Action Plans and Audit defense. She also reviews and writes employment contracts, policies, and handbooks. Additionally, Susie is a regular speaker on employment matters.

Kate Dewberry, a partner at Poyner Spruill, counsels and represents employers on employment law issues and litigation arising under federal and state laws covering leave, discrimination, termination, affirmative action, and wage and hour law. She serves as employment counsel in mergers and acquisitions, analyzing due diligence, and advising on employment components of purchase agreements and transition plans.
