COURT DECISION LIMITS EMPLOYEE MEDICAL LEAVE UNDER ADA
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (the “ADA”) is intended to prevent discrimination against persons with disabilities. Some provisions are well understood. For example, employers know that they cannot terminate an employee who suffers from a disability if the employee can perform the essential functions of the job. Other provisions of the ADA are less clear.

While not many clients call upon their lawyers to negotiate hush agreements to cover up personal indiscretions, an enforceable confidentiality provision is a key component in many agreements. Parties have varying motives to keep a contract’s terms hidden from public scrutiny.
