What employers can do when they cannot identify an effective accommodation

Posted on October 26, 2023


A new resource from the Job Accommodation Network (JAN) talks about options an employer should consider if they can’t identify a reasonable accommodation after making a good-faith effort to do so.  They could:

  • Talk to the employee and review past attempts.
  • If the employee can’t provide more ideas, look for help from outside resources like local groups or job coaches, or JAN.
  • Consider trying untested accommodation ideas or relocating the employee to a different job.

There’s no fixed time limit for trying; it depends on the situation’s difficulty and cost. Employers should assess the circumstances, cost, and effect on other employees.
