Accommodation laws exist to ensure all employees have fair and equal access to work.
Accommodation in the Workplace
An employer's responsibility is to provide a workplace that is free from discrimination. In some cases, that may require accommodation for an employee's specific needs, such as
- Physical, mental or neurological disability
- Childcare obligations
- Gender identity
