Mental health in the workplace continues to gain attention as a hidden problem, spotlighted by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Companies are working to address the stigma and cultivate a culture of psychological wellness. This is a hot topic that has substantial overlap and interplay with employment law issues, such as leave of absence, accommodations, and discrimination.
