ADA Reasonable Accommodations for Protected Classes
Per the ADA, reasonable accommodations may include:
- Modified equipment
- Modified work schedules
- Adjusted training materials, policies, or exams
- Readers and interpreters
- Job restructuring
Generally, reasonable accommodations should allow a person with a disability to participate in the application process, perform the essential functions of their position, and access the full benefits of employment enjoyed by those without disabilities.
If an employer demotes you, fires you, or makes any other adverse decision because you requested a reasonable accommodation, they are committing retaliation, which is unlawful. The only time an employer can refuse to provide a requested accommodation is if they can prove that the accommodation would be substantially difficult or expensive to arrange (i.e. causing undue hardship).
Even if the employer can prove that the requested accommodation would cause undue hardship, any type of subsequent retaliation is still unlawful, and you may be entitled to compensation.
