The new list covers things such as diabetes, autism, ptsd and epilepsy.
I think this is going to be a mess for employers. How the heck am I supposed to accommodate someone with PTSD? I am supposed to make sure the equipment ceases to make loud noises as it changes from cycle to cycle...build a special building and move the air compressor. Do I tell my customers to be extra nice? Yikes. I can see accommodating some things like the diabetes..but holy moly how can you accommodate and more importantly prove accommodation for the others?
Get ready customers your cost of goods will go up again as we employers figure out how to make new/additional accommodations.

Catch 22- I work with another nurse who is mid 50s and who has a debilitating medical condition that affects her extremities. She really wants to work (is a widow), but is almost to the point of being unable to safely handle our fragile patients. In addition, there are many accommodations that are made in her work assignment. What to do? How to protect her rights as a person and worker, while at the same time doing what is best for the pts and the company. Such a fine balancing act-
