ADA Reasonable Accommodations

WHAT IS A REASONABLE ACCOMODATION?

Under the FEHA, ‘reasonable accommodation’ means a modification or adjustment to the workplace that enables the employee to perform the essential functions of the job held or desired.  Reasonable accommodations can permit the employee to continue working and performing the Essential Functions, instead of requiring a medical leave of absence.  Reasonable Accommodations can also be temporary light duty assignments, or granting medical leave of absence, to allow the employee to recover sufficiently to return to work.
