Disability Discrimination

When disabled applicants or employees have the necessary experience, skills, and certifications for a job, and can perform the essential functions, employers are required to provide reasonable accommodations, if they do not cause undue hardship.

A disability is a physical or mental impairment that limits one or more major life activities

A reasonable accommodations may include restructuring the job position around the employee’s disability by:

  • Changing existing equipment for the disabled employee
  • Transferring an employee to the same or similar position at a different location
  • Modifying an employee’s work schedule to allow time for required medical treatment
  • Allowing for a reasonable amount of unpaid medical leave
