Under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a job, the work environment, or the way things are usually done during the hiring process. Job accommodations are changes to the ways workplace tasks are typically done that help people with disabilities be successful and have the same opportunities as people without disabilities.
The ADA requires reasonable accommodations as they relate to three aspects of employment: 1) ensuring equal opportunity in the application process; 2) enabling a qualified individual with a disability to perform the essential functions of a job; and 3) making it possible for an employee with a disability to enjoy equal benefits and privileges of employment.
On the next episode of ADA Live! we welcome guest Sheryl Ellis, to discuss Title I from both the employee and employer perspective. Sheryl specializes in ADA compliance and workplace accommodations, assisting employees and employers in achieving the best possible outcomes for both parties. Sheryl is the author of “Making It Work: Managing Your Health Condition Through ADA Workplace Accommodations.” Please join us!
