Overview

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prevents discrimination against individuals with disabilities and makes it unlawful to discriminate in employment against a qualified individual with a disability. The ADA also outlaws discrimination in government services, public accommodations, transportation, and telecommunications. 

How do I write a letter to request for reasonable accommodation to an employer with disabilities?

If due to some events, an employee becomes disabled, it doesn't mean that he cannot perform a job within the company. A common way is to modify the workplace accommodation or to change the working environment in such a way that a person with limitations in their abilities to do their job. In order to announce this to the employer, a request letter for accommodation can be sent to management and you can refer to the letter written by a person that asks the company for support in their living conditions, by requesting reasonable accommodation near the workplace. What types of accommodations are generally considered reasonable?

  • Provide reserved parking;
  • Change job activities, tasks;
  • Adjust and improve accessibility in a work area;
  • Change the presentation of tests and training materials;
  • Provide or adjust a product, equipment, or software;
  • Allow a flexible work schedule;
  • Provide an aid or a service to increase access;
  • Reassign to a vacant position.

In the body of your letter include the following:

  • Identify the reason why you need accommodation;
  • Identify the specific problems that you are having with commuting;
  • Avoid writing that you are unable to perform your job;
  • If you are qualified with reasonable accommodation to perform the essential functions of the job;
  • Employers are not requiring eliminating essential functions of the job;
  • Articulate your ideas for reasonable accommodations if any;
  • Request that your employer share their accommodation ideas;
  • Ask that your employer respond to your request within a reasonable time;
  • Send it besides your boss or HR manager, to any additional people, such as a direct supervisor.
