Accommodations in the Workplace
A small modification to the hiring process, an adjustment to the work environment, an allowance for extra time to process verbal instructions — these are all examples of types of accommodations for people with disabilities. Resources exist to help employers effectively meet the reasonable accommodation needs of employees, when necessary.
