If you have encountered an ADA lawsuit, we also provide assertive dispute resolution and defense litigation.

Understanding The ADA And Reasonable Accommodations

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) states that employers must provide reasonable accommodations for employees who have a disability. Per the ADA, reasonable accommodation is a modification to the hiring process, job duties or work environment that enables someone who has a disability to perform to the same extent as someone who does not.

Reasonable accommodations can include:

  • Physical changes such as adding a ramp or handrails
  • Technology such as screen reader software, closed captions and video phones
  • Communication such as brail signage or sign language interpreters
  • Policies such as allowing users to bring service animals to work

As one of the region’s premier business and employment law firms, we have a deep understanding of the ADA’s many complex regulations. Every day, we counsel our clients to take smart steps regarding ADA compliance and human resource management.
