Reasonable Accommodations
Practice Area

Alan Lescht and Associates successfully represents state and local government employees in reasonable accommodations cases in Washington, DC, Maryland, and northern Virginia

What are reasonable accommodations?

A reasonable accommodation is any change in the workplace or the way things are done.  The purpose of a reasonable accommodation is to provide equal employment opportunities to people with disabilities.  Accommodations may include an alternative schedule, telework, modified job duties, interpreters, and ergonomic modifications.

What are my rights?

You have rights.  The Americans with Disabilities Act requires covered employers, including private sector employers with at least 15 employees, to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified employees with disabilities.  Employees who are pregnant or who have medical conditions related to pregnancy or childbirth may also need reasonable accommodations.  It is illegal for employers to retaliate against employees for requesting reasonable accommodations.  Your employer is required to work with you to figure out what accommodations you need.  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 determine if you have a claim, explain your rights, and give you legal advice about how to seek justice.  Alan Lescht and Associates represents state and local government employees in the following reasonable accommodations matters:
