Reasonable Accommodations

Reasonable Accommodations

Although we may be qualified to get the job done, we may need to request assistance by way of reasonable accommodations as stated under the Americans with Disabilities Act. You might wonder, “Are all employers required to make reasonable accommodations?”or “How do I make the request?”.

The Job Accommodation Network has a great tool for learning more about which employers fall under Title I of the ADA. JAN also offers helpful suggestions for a process job seekers can use, including a sample letter. See the Employee’s Guide to Negotiating and Requesting Reasonable Accommodations Under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
