What is a reasonable accommodation?
Under the law, employers must provide disabled workers with accommodations necessary to allow them to function effectively in the workplace. However, not all accommodations that may be possible are necessarily required; employers are only required to make what are known as reasonable accommodations. Under the law, a reasonable accommodation is understood as one that does not place an undue hardship on an employer. What may constitute an undue hardship depends on a wide range of different factors, from the size of the employer’s business to the nature of the accommodation and how much it might cost.
