However, the ADA goes further than simply outlawing discrimination: It also requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations to allow employees to do their jobs.A reasonable accommodation is assistance or a change in the job or the workplace that will allow an employee with a disability to do a job.Employees do not have to make the request in writing, nor do they have to use any particular language.(In other words, the employee doesn't have to mention the ADA or use the words "reasonable accommodation" in making the request.) They simply need to request that some workplace change be made because of a medical condition, impairment, or disability.The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against applicants and employees with disabilities.Employers may not, for example, refuse to hire someone or pay someone less just because that person has a disability.It is the applicant’s or employee’s responsibility to request a reasonable accommodation initially. This makes sense, as one of the purposes of the ADA was to eliminate paternalism and biased assumptions about what people with disabilities can and cannot accomplish.
Some accommodations involve changing workplace rules, including relaxing uniform requirements or allowing more flexible work schedules.If you have a disability, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), you might need a reasonable accommodation to do your job.Employers are legally required to provide reasonable accommodations.Testimonials Dear William, I just want to tell you what a responsible and dedicated employee you have in Priscilla who delivered the colour proofs to me and even picked them up this morning!
