On July 26, 2023, the EEOC issued guidance explaining how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies to job applicants and employees with visual disabilities. Specifically, the guidance discusses:
- When an employer may ask an applicant or employee questions about a vision impairment and how an employer should treat voluntary disclosures;
- What types of reasonable accommodations applicants or employees with visual disabilities may need;
- How an employer should handle safety concerns about applicants and employees with visual disabilities; and
- How an employer can ensure that no employee is harassed because of a visual disability.
This is an excellent resource that should be reviewed by any employer with visually impaired applicants or employees.
