About 2.3 million Americans have some form of epilepsy, which causes occasional seizures.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission just published a new fact sheet that explains whether epilepsy is considered a "disability" under the Americans with Disabilities Act (answer: sometimes), whether employers can ask applicants if they have epilepsy (answer: no) and how to deal with safety concerns about people with epilepsy.

Find the fact sheet at www.eeoc. gov/facts/epilepsy.html.
