Both federal and state law require employers to provide reasonable accommodations to disabled employees as long as the requested accommodations do not impose an undue hardship on the employer’s business operations.
Generally speaking, reasonable accommodations are adjustments or modifications provided by the employer to enable employees with disabilities to enjoy equal employment opportunities in the workplace.
Accommodations vary depending on the needs of the employee at issue. Once an accommodation issue is raised, employers are obligated to engage in the “interactive process” with the employee to discuss potential accommodations.
