People with migraine disease often experience stigma and discrimination in the workplace. They have reported a diminished work capacity, which contributes to such treatment. To level the playing field, employers must create a welcoming environment. educate employees to reduce stigma, take steps to prevent discrimination, and offer adequate benefits so employees can receive appropriate treatment.

  • The impact of migraine disease in the workplace and the negative consequences of receiving improper treatment.
  • An economic discussion of the burden of such conditions in the workplace.
  • Tips from an attorney on preventing discrimination, reducing stigma, and offering comprehensive health   coverage.
  • Recommendations and resources on how to build a positive workplace, including insight from an employer advisory group.
