Do This; Don’t Do That: Disability Discrimination

In this blog post, we discuss tips to help avoid disability discrimination in the workplace.

DO: Tell your employer about your disability

Employers must know about your disability in order for them to be held accountable. Your disability must not interfere with your ability to perform the duties and responsibilities of your job. If you request a reasonable accommodation for your disability, your employer must engage with you in the interactive process in order to comply with federal law.

DON’T: Fail to Communicate to Your Employer Whether an Accommodation is Working for ou

You do not have to accept an accommodation that your employer suggests if it does not work for your disability. In the same vein, your employer does not have to accept an accommodation you suggest If it does not work for them. In essence, the goal is for there to be a mutual accommodation that works for both the employer and employee alike.
