Reasonable Accommodations Under ADA

REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS UNDER ADA

Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) requires an employer to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities who are employees or applicants for employment, unless to do so would cause undue hardship. In general, an accommodation is any change in the work environment or in customary procedures or processes that enables an individual with a disability to enjoy equal employment opportunities.

There are three categories of reasonable accommodations:

  • Modifications or adjustments to a job application process that enable a qualified applicant with a disability to be considered for the position
  • Modifications or adjustments to the work environment or to the manner or circumstances under which the position is customarily performed that enable a qualified individual with a disability to perform the essential functions of that position
  • Modifications or adjustments that enable an employee with a disability to enjoy equal benefits and privileges of employment as are enjoyed by other similarly situated employees without disabilities

For more information, see Summary of ADA.

To request a reasonable accommodation, an employee should complete the Reasonable Accommodation Form available from the Office of Human Resources.
