Work at Home/Telework as a Reasonable Accommodation- U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)

The EEOC fact sheet, "Work at Home/Telework as a Reasonable Accommodation", explains the ways that employers may use existing telework programs or allow an individual to work at home as a reasonable accommodation. This document answers questions including:

  • Does the ADA require employers to have telework programs?
  • How should an employer determine whether someone may need to work at home as a reasonable accommodation?
  • How should an employer determine whether a particular job can be performed at home?
  • How frequently may someone with a disability work at home as a reasonable accommodation?
  • May an employer make accommodations that enable an employee to work full-time in the workplace rather than granting a request to work at home?
