Second Highest Sexual Harassment Jury Verdict in Georgia for 2016
A: I'm sorry this happened to you. Under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) an employer must provide a reasonable accommodation to a disability that allows you to perform your job. This requires a discussion about what would be "reasonable" given your job, the company's business, etc. Check your company's handbook or check to see if there are any written policies/forms for requesting an accommodation and/or check with HR. You want to make sure your request is in writing. If your company denies your request for accommodation or you are not getting a response to your request, it may be helpful to speak with an employment attorney on the phone to discuss whether your health issue qualifies as a "disability" under the ADA, whether any reasonable accommodations exist for you to perform your job, and whether the accommodation you requested or need would cause an "undue hardship" on the company. I hope this is helpful.
