Reasonable Accommodation Toolkit (Federal and California)
Complying with the patchwork of federal, state, and local laws that impact the workplace can leave HR professionals frazzled. While there are many workplace laws that employers must comply with, few are as complex and litigious as the requirements to provide reasonable accommodations.
California and Federal disability requirements apply to all employers who are made aware of an individual’s disability. The employer is required to provide a reasonable accommodation unless it can be demonstrated that the accommodation would impose an undue hardship.
Reasonable accommodations are modifications or adjustments to a job, the work environment, or the way things are “usually done,” that enable individuals who have needs under certain qualifying bases to perform the essential functions of the job and enjoy equal employment opportunities.
