Understanding Reasonable Accommodations
As a lawyer who has handled these cases for more than 30 years, I understand how subtle disability discrimination may be. Often, employees are the victims of discrimination and they do not even know it, simply because the discrimination is so commonplace. For example, an employer that refuses to allow a diabetic employee regular scheduled breaks to monitor and address insulin levels is in violation of the law. Allowing breaks is a reasonable accommodation.
Other examples of employers committing disability discrimination by not providing reasonable accommodations include not allowing an interpreter for deaf job applicants or employees refusing to modify workstations to allow access to employees who use wheelchairs.
