Sixth Circuit Holds that Telecommuting can be Considered a Reasonable Accommodation under the ADA

May 1, 2014

The Sixth Circuit Federal Appeals Court has held that Telecommuting can be considered a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”).  The ADA requires that qualifying employers provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities under the Act.  The Court reasoned because of technological advances, telecommuting may be a reasonable accommodation when face to face interaction is not an essential function of the job.  If you believe you are entitled to a reasonable accommodation of treated differently because of a disability, please contact your Tampa Employment Lawyer, Darren McClain.
