NOT A TEACHER
Have you read the text that follows that sentence? See Accommodation - Employee and Applicant Accommodation Under ADA
Employers of choice make accommodations, whenever possible, for employees.
According to the ADA, "an employer is required to make a reasonable accommodation to the known disability of an employee if it would not impose an 'undue hardship' on the operation of the employer's business. Undue hardship is defined as an action requiring significant difficulty or expense when considered in light of factors such as an employer's size, financial resources, and the nature and structure of its operation.
"An employer is not required to lower quality or production standards to make an accommodation; nor is an employer obligated to provide personal use items such as glasses or hearing aids."
These are examples of accommodations an employer might make for a qualified employee.
- Modify the employee's work schedule in terms of hours, days, shifts, full- or part-time work, or starting and ending times.
- Provide a sign language interpreter or a reader when necessary at work for gatherings such as meetings and training sessions.
- Make sure that all areas the employee needs to enter to perform his or her job and to enjoy the equal benefits of employment are accessible.
