Reasonable Accommodations for Hepatitis
A reader asks about ADA protections for liver disease.
I have been diagnosed with hepatitis B. My doctor told me that most adults who contract Hepatitis B are able to clear the virus from their bodies and fully recover within months. Right now, though, I feel really crummy -- tired all the time and nauseated. Do I have the right to ask my employer for time off or for some changes in my job to help me manage the next few months?
