The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) gives employees with disabilities the right to reasonable accommodation: changes to the job or the workplace that will allow them to perform the job's essential functions. Reasonable accommodations range from changing the physical structure of the workspace (like lowering a desktop, installing soundproofing, or widening hallways) to providing technological assistance to providing more frequent supervisory feedback and coaching. The articles below explore some common reasonable accommodation questions, including when time off work might be considered a reasonable accommodation for a disability.
