Reasonable Accommodations for Disability
If a disability or medical condition is affecting an employee’s ability to work, and the employer is aware of the employee’s disability, it must take steps to reasonably accommodate his/her disability. This includes engaging in an interactive dialogue to determine what type of accommodation would be appropriate under the circumstances. When the employer fails to contact the employee to have this dialogue and/or fails to provide an effective, reasonable accommodation for his/her disability, it violates the law.
Because the law in this area can be rather complex, you should contact a disability accommodation attorney at Workplace Justice Advocates, A Professional Law Corporation, to determine whether you have a valid claim.
