  • Explain to the employee that discussing medical conditions in the work place is sensitive and probably should be left up to professionals to figure out.
  • Explain to the employee that you have the same medical condition, and you do not require any accommodations, so you do not believe they need one either.
  • Recommend that the employee meet with the FCO to discuss the matter further.
  • Determine if there is something that can be done to accommodate the employee. Contact the deployed Equal Rights Officer or the Disability Employment Program Manager at HQ for further assistance.
