THE TRUTH ABOUT REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS

Reasonable accommodations are usually simple steps that allow employees with disabilities to perform their jobs.

  • remove or change a job's essential functions to accommodate the employee;
  • lower production or performance standards;
  • provide an employee with an adjustment that would assist the individual both on & off the job, such as a prosthetic limb, wheelchair, or eyeglasses;
  • permit violations of rules of conduct necessary for the operation of the business
