When an employee has a disability that can be reasonably accommodated, the employer has an obligation to give the employee an accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 ("ADAAA"). Accommodations can come in a variety of different forms, as long as the accommodation is reasonable and does not put an undue burden on the employer.
If you have a disability and you need an accommodation, let your employer know, in writing, what you need and why. It is the employer's obligation to work with you to find a reasonable accommodation. If your employer is refusing to accommodate your disability, contact the experienced employment attorneys at Heins Law Office for your free phone consultation.
