Advocates For Victims Of Disability Discrimination
Federal and state laws prohibit discrimination against disabled people and require employers to provide "reasonable accommodations" that enable disabled employees to do their jobs. Disabilities are broadly defined to include people who suffer from chronic conditions, whether physical or mental.
If your employer has failed to provide reasonable accommodations, or you have been discharged because you were unable to perform your job because of a failure to accommodate, you have rights.

What Is A Reasonable Accommodation?
The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission defines an accommodation as:
"Any change in the work environment or in the way things are customarily done that enables an individual with a disability to enjoy equal employment opportunities."
Some of the accommodations that employers can make are relatively simple, and require little or no financial investment on their part:
- Providing an employee with an adjustable work table or a large screen computer monitor
- Allowing an employee to work from home
- Modifying a job schedule
- Changing tests, training materials, or policies
- Reassigning an employee to another position equivalent in pay and responsibilities
