What are Considered to be
Reasonable Accommodations for a Disability?
The law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to employees or job applicants with
disabilities. Such accommodations include changes to the workplace (or work process) that assist those with disabilities in their application to, or performance of, a job. An accommodation is considered “reasonable” if it does not cause significant difficulty or expense for the employer.
Reasonable accommodations include actions like rearranging a workspace to accommodate a wheelchair user or providing a reader or interpreter for a blind or deaf employee or applicant.
