Assisting Job-Seekers with Accommodations

Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires employers to make reasonable accommodations that allow qualified applicants or employees with disabilities to perform the job. Accommodations are considered reasonable if they don’t create an undue hardship on the functioning of the business. People with a mental health disability can also qualify for reasonable accommodations. Knowing employee rights and the available resources can be instrumental in supporting job seekers with gaining and maintaining employment. Being aware of what accommodations are available and how to access an accommodation is an important component of employment planning.
