Getting An Accommodation If You Need One To Help You Do Your Job

Next » « Previous


As long as you're able to perform the essential functions of your job, you are probably entitled to an accommodation if you need one because of your health condition or a treatment. What accommodation you'll receive is a matter of negotiation with your employer. 

Even if you're not entitled to an accommodation, use the same negotiation techniques to get an accommodation. Without an accommodation, you stand a chance of being fired for not performing your job well enough.

Now is the time to ask for the accommodation you need.

In order to get an accommodation, you must:

  • Tell your employer about your health condition, at least as a general matter and
  • Request the accommodation
