As a new edition of the manual of mental disorders used to diagnose psychiatric conditions hits publishers, employers are concerned that the expansion of definitions for some types of disabilities will open them to more lawsuits and complaints of disability discrimination.
Mild neurocognitive disorder, as well as binge eating disorder and premenstrual dysphoric disorder, are among new diagnoses, Mr. McDonald said.
"There's potential here where every time the psychiatric profession makes changes, there tends to be an increase in diagnoses, and then it has an impact on the number of claims" in courts and equal employment opportunity offices, said James J. McDonald, a lawyer at Fisher & Phillips LLP, which represents employers in discrimination suits.
