Abstract: Reasonable accommodations can be defined as any change in the work environment or in the way things are usually done that results in equal employment opportunity for an individual with a disability. At DOT, reasonable accommodations can be provided to job applicants, to employees to enable them to perform essential job functions, or to employees when a modification is required to ensure equal access to benefits and privileges of employment. As partners in the reasonable accommodation process, the supervisor/decision-maker, the employee, and the DRC must be aware of and fulfill their responsibilities as described in the DOT Order.
