Reasonable Workplace Accommodations
When an employee makes a request for a reasonable accommodation that involves performance of their job, EOS works with the employee and the employee's supervisor to ensure that an appropriate accommodation is provided that meets the individual's disability-related needs and enables the individual to perform the essential functions of their position. In addition to consulting with their medical provider, an employee may find the Job Accommodation Network (JAN) a helpful resource for learning more about the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) and exploring accommodation options. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is another excellent resource for seeking more information about workplace accommodations.
