Attorney Elizabeth Mason is available for consultation and representation in securing reasonable accommodations for employees. In Massachusetts, employers who have six or more employees are required to make reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities. An employee is considered disabled if he or she has an impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities or is regarded as having such an impairment.
An employer is required to provide reasonable accommodations for an employee's disability so long as the accommodations are not an "undue hardship" to the business. A reasonable accommodation is an adjustment or modification to a job, employment practice or work environment that enables a disabled to person to perform the essential functions of his or her job. Types of accommodations that may be considered reasonable include, but are not limited to:
Making job facilities accessible to a disabled person
Modifying work schedules
Obtaining or modifying adaptive job equipment or devices
Re-assigning non-essential job functions
Modifying methods of supervision or evaluation
Modification of test, examination or selection devices
Allowing time off for medical appointments
Re-assignment or transfer to a vacant position
If you need assistance in securing reasonable accomodations, feel free to contact Attorney Mason at (617)-658-3018.
