Employees with Disabilities- 3 Common Accepted Employer Accommodations

Disability-accommodation

“The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is federal law that protects disabled employees from being discriminated against in the workplace. Consistent with the ADA, employees with disabil0126ities are permitted under California disability discrimination law to request reasonable accommodations from their employers in order to help them perform their job duties.”

In California, employers are legally bound to provide a disabled employee reasonable accommodations. One stipulation- the cost of this accommodation can not be deemed an undue hardship to the employer.

3 Common Requests workers with disabilities can legally make  

“Code of Regulations Section 7293.6(p)(2) lays out several reasonable accommodation examples that employees can request from their employer.” Here are just 3 common ones:

  1. Employers must modify workspaces to accommodate a disabled employee, like- making break rooms and restrooms accessible, retrofitting stairs with a ramp, and refashioning workplace equipment, furniture, and devices, etc
  2. If an employee requests it, the location of job performance can be moved. It is often deemed necessary to allow an employee to perform their job duties with a work-from-home arrangement, at a different worksite location, or to use a telework solution.
  3. Employers must allow an employee to bring an assistive animal to work. Usually, the animal is a service dog.

There are additional rules and regulations that protect California workers. If you are a disabled employee and you believe that your employer may have improperly denied you a reasonable accommodation, get in touch with KJT LAW GROUP now.

The 5 Most Dangerous Intersections in California

Any number of situations can lead to an auto accident. Distracted driving, speeding, and equipment failure are just a few of the reasons car crashes occur. Sometimes, the design of an intersection also plays a part in auto accidents.

I Was Injured by a Drunk Driver. What Should I Do?

Drunk driving is still a leading cause of death in vehicle crashes. Per National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics, every 48 minutes a person dies as a result of a crash involving a drunk driver. If you’re involved in a crash with a drunk driver, call the police and seek medical care. You might feel fine, but adrenaline can mask the pain and discomfort for a few hours.

Will My Personal Injury Case Go to Trial?

Black’s Law Dictionary estimates that only four to five percent of personal injury cases ever make it to trial. Very few cases ever do make it into a courtroom. Most reach an out-of-court settlement. This is due to two things. First, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), about half of all civil cases lead to a positive outcome for the plaintiff. Second, it’s time-consuming. It can take months or even years to battle a personal injury case in the courts.

What Should I Do After a Bicycle Accident?

When you’re in an accident on your bicycle, call the police. Of course, if you’re badly injured, you’ll have to rely on a witness to do this for you. If you feel fine, you still must call the police. You might find more damage to your bicycle than you first thought. You don’t want the driver to leave without having a way to get hold of that driver down the road.
