Disability Discrimination and Reasonable Accommodations

In addition to providing protections for the disabled, the ADA and FEHA also mandate that employers must provide reasonable accommodations in the workplace to allow those with disabilities the ability to carry out their normal job duties.

Reasonable accommodations are based upon the individual needs of the employee, and must be specifically requested. However, employers are not required to make accommodations that would result in undue hardship. When analyzing if an accommodation would place undue hardship upon an employer, numerous factors will be taken into account such as the:

Examples of Reasonable Accommodations may include: restructuring an employee’s hours to allow for medical appointments and treatment; providing interpreters for the hearing impaired; obtaining equipment that will allow the employee to perform their jobs; modifying an employee’s workspace to make it readily accessible to those who utilize wheelchairs or other medical equipment to assist movement; and additional nutritional breaks as necessary for those with conditions such as diabetes.

An experienced lawyer will be able to make a preliminary determination as to whether or not an accommodation may be deemed reasonable, and if a violation of the reasonable accommodation rule has taken place.
