Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified applicants and employees with a disability unless the employer can demonstrate that doing so creates an undue hardship to the employer or poses a direct threat to the safety of the employee or others in the workplace. An accommodation may include a change to the work environment or to the way in which a job is usually performed.
The employee should be asked to provide appropriate documentation from his or her health care provider regarding the nature of any impairment(s), severity, duration, activities limited by the impairment(s) and the extent to which the impairment(s) limits the employee's ability to perform the job's essential duties/functions.
Complaints alleging discrimination against applicants or employees on the basis of disability should be addressed to:
