Whether you're an employee or an employer, you should be striving to support mental wellness within your organization. While this document is not intended to be a definitive guide on setting up a workplace wellness program, it contains plenty of information to help employers and employees navigate building out a program. Subjects include the rights of employees, the responsibilities of employers, accommodations, and real-world examples of companies promoting mental wellness.
Mental health issues shouldn't prevent you from getting or keeping a job. This guide covers the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), accommodations employers can make (including those they don't have to make), and how employees can protect themselves in the workplace. Whether you have a disability or have colleagues who do, this guide will help you understand employee rights in the workplace.
