ADA Reasonable Accommodation Checklist

Conceptual photo showing printed text Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law that requires covered employers to provide reasonable accommodations to employees and applicants with disabilities, except when the accommodation would cause an undue hardship on the operation of the employer’s business.

A reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a job, the work environment or the operations of the hiring process. These modifications enable an individual with a disability to have an equal opportunity not only to get a job but also to successfully perform their job tasks to the same extent as people without disabilities.

This checklist outlines key steps to help employers like you comply with the ADA’s reasonable accommodation requirements. Many states have their own laws that provide additional employment protections to employees, so employers must comply with the ADA and any applicable state laws. Accordingly, employers are encouraged to seek legal counsel to address specific issues and concerns.

Use this checklist to review your organization’s compliance with the ADA’s requirement to provide reasonable accommodations to employees and applicants with disabilities. For assistance, contact Horst Insurance.
