An employer also may not ask job applicants if they have a disability (or about the nature of an obvious disability).An employer may ask job applicants whether they can perform the job and how they would perform the job, with or without a reasonable accommodation.After a job is offered to an applicant, the law allows an employer to condition the job offer on the applicant answering certain medical questions or successfully passing a medical exam, but only if all new employees in the same type of job have to answer the questions or take the exam.
A reasonable accommodation is any change in the work environment (or in the way things are usually done) to help a person with a disability apply for a job, perform the duties of a job, or enjoy the benefits and privileges of employment.
Reasonable accommodation might include, for example, making the workplace accessible for wheelchair users or providing a reader or interpreter for someone who is blind or hearing impaired. An employer doesn't have to provide an accommodation if doing so would cause undue hardship to the employer.
The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.
It is illegal to harass an applicant or employee because he has a disability, had a disability in the past, or is believed to have a physical or mental impairment that is not transitory (lasting or expected to last six months or less) and minor (even if he does not have such an impairment).
An employer does not have to provide the exact accommodation the employee or job applicant wants.
If more than one accommodation works, the employer may choose which one to provide.Our chants were loud and clear: we are visible, you better take notice!We informed an audience of the importance of having a voice and being noticed.I write this as a bisexual polyamorous woman hoping to lend her voice to those shouting out for the LGBTQ community.When I heard about the mass shooting that took place at Pulse in Orlando, I was instantly beaten over the head by the realization we’d just celebrated our Pride here in Utah only a week before — one week before the attack on a gay nightclub, I’d spent the final day of the Utah Pride Festival marching in the parade and speaking on a panel about B erasure.I mostly ignored the internet for several days following.
