Do veterans returning from war with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) qualify as “disabled” under the ADA and, thus, are due accommodations?

Questions like that are answered in a new EEOC guidance document, Veterans and the ADA: A Guide for Employers. It explains how protections for vets with service-related disabilities differ under the ADA and the Uniformed Services Employment and Re­­employment Rights Act (USERRA), and how employers can prevent disability-based discrimination and provide reasonable accommodations.
