Disability and Reasonable Accommodation Policy


Summary

This form is a Disability and Reasonable Accommodation Policy that emphasizes the employer’s commitment to treat individuals with disabilities fairly and accommodate them where appropriate. This form includes practical guidance and drafting notes. This policy is intended for private employers. Employers may include this policy in an employee handbook or distribute it as a standalone policy. It is based on federal law and does not address all potential state law distinctions; thus, you should check any relevant state and local laws. This policy complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and corresponding state and local laws that prohibit most employers from discriminating against a qualified employee or applicant with a disability, and requires an employer to reasonably accommodate qualified employees and applicants with disabilities unless doing so would cause significant difficulty or expense for the employer.
