When you have a chronic illness or disability and it affects your ability to work, the Americans with Disabilities Act legally establishes your right to ask your employer for "reasonable accommodation." Perhaps you need an adjustable keyboard to avoid repetitive stress injury, a different monitor because the one you have triggers migraines, a different height workspace to accommodate your inability to stand, or time to rest during the day because you are pregnant or easily fatigued due to cancer treatments. All of these are examples of reasonable accommodation in the workplace. To learn more, view the entries in this section.
