With more than 25,000 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) charges filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in the past year, it’s more prudent than ever for employers to understand what’s required of them by law.

A new article from HR Morning explained how three recent court rulings convey best practices regarding the ADA accommodations process.

The court cases found:

  • ADA accommodations don’t necessarily have to be given to employees immediately.
  • Companies can fail to accommodate ADA requests as long as they make every effort to try.
  • Employers can be required to make accommodations that cover more than just essential job functions.
