Shahbazian Law is committed to providing equal opportunity and reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities. Shahbazian Law complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act and all other applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding disability discrimination and accommodation.
The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits employers from discriminating against employees based on disability and requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations for employees’ disabilities unless doing so would create an undue hardship (42 U.S.C. § 12101 to 12165). For information about employer coverage under the ADA, see 42 U.S.C. § 12111(5).
Reasonable accommodations are available for the known physical or mental limitations of qualified employees with disabilities. An employee is qualified if they can perform essential job functions with or without reasonable accommodation.
For purposes of this policy, a disability is any physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity.
A reasonable accommodation is a modification or adjustment of an employee’s job or work environment that enables that employee to perform essential job functions or enjoy the same employment benefits and privileges as similarly situated employees without disabilities. Examples of reasonable accommodations include modifying a workspace to make it wheelchair accessible, providing screen reading software, or adjusting an employee’s work schedule to accommodate medical appointments. Shahbazian Law does not provide accommodations of a personal nature, such as eyeglasses or hearing aids.
Shahbazian Law is committed to providing accommodations so long as accommodations do not place an undue hardship on business operations or pose a threat to the health or safety of employees in the workplace.
