According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Association Provision of the ADA prohibits employment discrimination against people who do not have disabilities but who have known relationship or association with a person with a known disability. This means that an employer is prohibited from making adverse employment decisions based on unfounded concerns about the known disability of a family member or anyone else with whom the applicant or employee has a relationship. For more information, see: Questions and Answers about the Association Provision of the ADA.
Job Accommodations Network (JAN) has published a new document that addresses some of the most frequently asked questions about disability disclosure and employment. Information is relevant to both individuals with disabilities and employers. See Disability Disclosure and Employment.
