October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month and Seeking Work Accommodations.

Posted October 2014 in Disability by Andrea C. Farney

National Disability Employment Awareness Month is held every October and is supported by the Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP).  When you have a disability you may need an accommodation to be able to work.  An accommodation can include a change in work location, start and end times, exemptions from certain types of work or time off of work to name a few.  If you are looking for information and resources on disability and employment, ODEP has a rich FAQ page.  If you are considering whether or how to ask their employer for an accommodation, the Job Accommodation Network has a practical guide that can help you determine how to approach your employer.  If you believe you are being treated differently because of your disability or request for an accommodation, you should consider contacting Triquetra Law so we can advise you of your options.  Let us know about any special needs you have related to hearing, vision, or ambulatory disabilities so we can work with you to accommodate your equal access to our provided legal services.
