A reasonable accommodation is a change an employer makes to the work environment, schedule or procedures to help a disabled employee perform necessary job functions or important life activities in the workplace. The accommodation should make it easier for the employee to successfully perform the duties of the position. However, these changes must not impose undue hardship, such as being too expensive or difficult to grant, on the employer.
Examples of reasonable accommodations include the following:
