BEST PRACTICES FOR EMPLOYERS TO DEAL WITH POSSIBLE WEIGHT DISCRIMINATION

Best Practices for Employers to Deal with Possible Weight Discrimination

Here are some practical tips for employers to consider to prevent weight discrimination:
• Review existing procedures and policies on disability, discrimination, and complaint protocol;
• Change/revise procedures as necessary to reflect recent changes to the law;
• Review job descriptions to make sure that any weight requirements are reasonably related to the essential requirements of the job;
• Treat requests for accommodation from overweight individuals with sensitivity, keeping in mind that the individual might well be entitled to ADA protection;
• Develop internal policies that mandate the courteous treatment of all employees, regardless of personal appearance;
• Educate all employees—especially managers—on what is inappropriate, unprofessional, or illegal conduct toward overweight employees;
