Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
An employer cannot demand to know the medical diagnosis of one of their employees. Such a demand is contrary to the Americans with Disabilities Act, which gives employees a right to privacy with respect to their medical conditions. All an employer is entitled to know and verify is that you are able to safely and effectively perform your job without risk to yourself or others.

If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
