116: Disability Accommodations in the Workplace. Part 1

We are going to talk about work accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act. In part 1, we discuss what accommodations are vs accessibility in general, who qualifies for accommodations under the ADA, and some ideas on how and when to request accommodation.

DISCLAIMER: We are not employment lawyers or disability civil rights attorneys. This is a general discussion of what we’ve been learning for our own individual work situations and is not legal advice. We encourage you to double check all information we give in this episode and/or consult a qualified professional for advice if you are in a situation where you want to ask for work accommodations.
