Reasonable Accommodation, LLC is an advisory and training firm immersed in the mechanics of Title 1 (Employment) of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Much of our daily workload consists of responding to the employer and legal counsel questions we receive concerning reasonable accommodation situations and Title 1 medical examination nuances.
The Reasonable Accommodation, LLC team supports private employers and local government agencies to set-up or fine-tune existing reasonable accommodation programs. Our specialized management training programs meet the annual training requirements of cities and counties that belong to risk compacts.
Medical professionals turn to us as a trusted source for training and consultation in matters related to essential function job analysis, post-offer testing, and functional capacity evaluation. We are pleased to apply our expertise to the reasonable accommodation and medical examination questions faced by highly trained therapists, physicians, and ergonomic evaluation professionals. We bring 35 years of experience in industrial rehabilitation and employment test training to our knowledge of medical examination under ADA Title 1.
We offer advanced ADA Title 1 charge preparation or response to attorneys and ADA Coordinators navigating medical examination, reasonable accommodation, and essential function-related charges.
And, when called upon by Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) staff or insight into subjects such as essential function job analysis or medical examination protocols, we take pride in on our contribution to lowering barriers to employment for those covered by ADA Title 1.
Reasonable Accommodation, LLC is built around these beliefs:
Every American has an inalienable civil right to work in a job or career for which he or she is qualified free from barriers presented by a physical or cognitive disability.
The vocational effect of most physical or cognitive disabilities can be mitigated through the process of reasonable accommodation, typically at no cost to an employer.
Those who are able to consciously set aside learned resistance to individuals who have, or may have, a disability will be rewarded with powerful tools that can be found in ADA Title I and in the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
