Newsmax: Attorney Andrew Lieb Talks About Mental Illness & Whether It's An Excuse For Being Late To Your Job

Attorney Andrew Lieb joined a Newsmax panel discussion about chronic tardiness at the workplace.

To qualify for accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a condition must be a statutorily recognized disability. Currently, chronic tardiness related to mental health doesn't meet this criterion.

If recognized, it must then be proven that the employer doesn't face undue hardship due to the employee's unpredictable timekeeping.

Lieb advised employers against bending rules for certain groups to avoid creating a reverse discrimination scenario. He advocated for strict, fair policies that benefit all employees and ensure genuine accommodations for recognized disabilities aren't undermined.
