Reasonable Accommodations
Practice Area

Alan Lescht and Associates assists employees in DC, northern Virginia, and Maryland, to request reasonable accommodations cases in the workplace.

What are reasonable accommodations?

A reasonable accommodation is any adjustment to an employee's workplace, job duties, or schedule. Employers must provide reasonable accommodations to employees with a disability to assist them in performing their job duties.  Common reasonable accommodations include a modified schedule, telework, or modified job duties.

What are my rights?

You have rights.  The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires private sector employers with at least 15 employees to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities.  Employees who are pregnant or who have medical conditions related to pregnancy or childbirth may also be entitled to reasonable accommodations.  If you have a disability, your employer is required to work with you to figure out what accommodations you need.  Furthermore, employers may not retaliate against employees for requesting reasonable accommodations.  If your employer fails to provide reasonable accommodations or retaliates against you for asking for accommodations, you could be entitled to damages.

Why should I hire Alan Lescht and Associates?

If you have a disability, requested reasonable accommodations, or were retaliated against for asking for accommodations, we can help.  We can explain your rights and give you legal advice about how to seek justice.  Alan Lescht and Associates represents private sector employees in the following reasonable accommodations matters:
