What are an employer's recordkeeping requirements under the employment provisions of the ADA?

Any disability-related information, such as reasonable accommodation requests, must be maintained by an employer in a separate, confidential file; not in a personnel file. This file will not follow the employee if they leave their current job. If a charge of disability-related discrimination is filed or an action is brought by EEOC, an employer must save all personnel records related to the charge until final disposition of the charge.
