mental disordersWhat do forgetfulness, menstrual cramps and temper tantrums have in common? They are all symptoms of new mental health disorders recognized in the latest version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), a handbook widely used by health care professionals to assess and diagnose mental disorders.

Join us in our Miami office on October 21st beginning at 8 am for the second session in our Labor & Employment breakfast series, “New Mental Disorders Could Lead To Spike in ADA Claims,” presented by Labor & Employment Shareholder Lisa K. Berg.

Lisa will discuss the challenges employers face with the obligation of assessing these new mental disorders and determining whether they constitute a mental disability under the ADA for the particular employee.
