According to the American Journal of Managed Care (AJMC), a new study found that employees with cancer face discrimination despite amendments to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The study also found that courts considered cases based on employment terms, such as denying promotions or forcing retirements, as having more merit than accommodation, hiring and termination allegations.
The study researchers concluded that since employers have difficulty meeting the ADA's reasonable accommodation guidelines, employers might work with oncologists who understand the needs of cancer patients and can help those in remission fulfill their jobs with assistance if necessary.
