Accommodating employees with disabilities

Neither a supervisor nor the department should make a determination that a specific accommodation is unreasonable or creates an undue hardship without consulting with Human Resources and/or the ADA Coordinator.

It is important to consider how your organization can tap this potential source of employees.Remember that the accommodation process can be ongoing as accommodation needs change or the work environment changes.Therefore, it is important to have an open communication with any employees with disabilities and check-in with them regularly.Not every person will self-identify that they have a disability and need accommodation.This may be due to fear of, for example, being passed over for promotion or embarrassment because of society's stigma of their disability.
