Types of ADA and Disability Discrimination in the Workplace
According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), disability discrimination occurs “when an employer or other entity covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended, or the Rehabilitation Act, as amended, treats a qualified individual with a disability who is an employee or applicant unfavorably because she has a disability.”
According to the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, discrimination based on a physical or mental disability is also against the law at the state level.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that employers provide reasonable accommodations to applicants and employees who have a qualified disability, so long as doing so would not cause undue hardship to the employer. Anytime an individual with a disability has the necessary skills, certifications, and experience for the job, and can perform a specific job’s essential functions, they should be afforded reasonable accommodations unless those accommodations are not unduly burdensome to the employer. These accommodations can include:
- Allowing a reasonable amount of time for unpaid medical leave.
- Restructuring jobs around the disability, which can include modifying an employee’s schedule.
- Transferring an employee to the same job or a substantially similar job at a different location so they can have more accommodations or better access to medical care period
- Changing existing equipment or facilities to enable easier use for the disabled worker.
