A Reasonable Accommodation Is Any Change in the Workplace
Video Transcribed: What is a reasonable accommodation? I’m Oklahoma City employment law attorney Colby Addison, and we’re talking about that today.
A reasonable accommodation is any change in the workplace or in the way, things are usually done to help a person with a disability, either apply for a job or perform certain duties of the job or enjoy the benefits and privileges of employment.
The Americans With Disabilities Act actually requires employers to take that action and provide reasonable accommodations to employees that are disabled, and that need certain accommodations.
The only exception that would prevent an employer from providing you that reasonable accommodation is if the accommodation would cause some sort of significant difficulty or expense for the employer.
If you’re unsure about whether or not you’re entitled to reasonable accommodation or whether your accommodation request is reasonable, please give the Oklahoma Workers Rights attorney a message at oklahomaworkersrights.com.
