Disability Discrimination

Are there limitations as to what are reasonable accommodations?

Yes, an employee request is not considered a reasonable accommodation if it results in an “undue hardship” on the employer. An undue hardship could be a request that is financially prohibitive or an accommodation that would be too extensive or disruptive of existing work conditions.

The law requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for people with physical disabilities (iStock).
