Were Reasonable Accommodations Made?
Employers have a duty to make reasonable accommodations for an employee with disabilities, unless the accommodations represent an undue hardship to the employer.
Employees and employers are supposed to engage in an interactive process to determine whether the employer can make accommodations for a disabled employee. In many instances, employers terminate employees without making any effort to accommodate the employee. Our lawyers have investigated many disability discrimination claims, and they know how to find the facts that will support your position.
