An employer must provide reasonable accommodation to an employee who is physically or mentally disabled, if the employee requests an accommodation. Reasonable accommodation refers to the provision of conditions, equipment, and an environment that enables an individual to effectively perform his or her job.
To be considered for reasonable accommodation:
1) the employee must request a reasonable accommodation for a physical or mental condition;
2) the employer must engage in an interactive process; and
3) the employer has to perform an individualized assessment regarding reasonable accommodation.
If you have been terminated because of your physical or mental disability and your employer did not take reasonable accommodation, then you might have a valid claim against your employer. Our team of employment law attorneys at Employment Rights Law Group will be able to help you.
