Reasonable Accommodations

San Francisco Reasonable Accommodations Attorneys

The discrimination lawyers at Minnis & Smallets help employees who have been subjected to discrimination because of their physical or mental disabilities.

California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and federal law require employers to provide reasonable accommodations to disabled employees if the accommodations do not cause undue hardship, such as significant expense or difficulty. Disabled employees may request their employers to reasonably accommodate any work limitations caused by the disability.

What reasonable accommodations are employers required to provide?

Reasonable accommodations are modifications or adjustments employers make to allow disabled employees to perform the essential functions of their jobs. Reasonable accommodations can include:

  • paid or unpaid leave of absence for treatment or recovery
  • delegation of non-essential job duties
  • time off for medical appointments
  • flexible work schedule
  • allowing work from home
  • modification of employer policies or expectations
  • transfer to a vacant position
  • making work stations and facilities readily accessible
  • job restructuring or other tools allowing disabled employees to perform their jobs
