If your business serves the public you must comply with the ADA and must provide “reasonable accommodation” to otherwise qualified disabled workers.
Here are examples of accommodations businesses make to comply with the ADA:
- Provide a modified workplace policy or procedure, such as an attendance policy.
- Provide a restructured job environment, for example, shifting certain job responsibilities to other employees.
- Provide unpaid leave if a disabled employee requests it.
- Provide a modified or part-time schedule.
Employers with fewer than 15 employees can be excepted from complying with the ADA laws if they would prove an undue hardship on their business.
