Reasonable accommodations are required in some cases

When you have a disability, you might still be able to work to earn a living. You have specific protections for this under the Americans with Disabilities Act and other laws. Knowing these rights can help you ensure that your employer is remaining in compliance with them, which can provide you with an equal chance to support yourself as any fully abled body person would.

In order to be considered a person who is covered under the ADA, you have to meet the definition of disabled. This means that you have a mental or physical impairment that limits life activities. This doesn't have to be anything obvious, but having a doctor's verification can help.

One thing that employers have to do is to provide reasonable accommodations for your needs. There isn't a list of specific things that employers are required to do. Instead, there is a general set of guidelines that require interpretation to determine how they fit into a specific situation.

A reasonable accommodation is something that the employer can do without exorbitant cost or harm to the business that would help you be able to perform your vital job duties. This could mean that you have more accommodations at larger companies, especially if the ones you need have a higher price tag. Some common accommodations include ergonomic equipment, special magnifying devices, the ability to sit to do your job or amplification equipment on phones.

It can be difficult to determine which notifications are reasonable. If you think that you aren't receiving what you should at work, you do have options, so find out how you can protect these rights.
