Question I am disabled. Isn't my boss required to provide me a flexible work schedule as a reasonable accommodation?

Answer If you need an accommodation because of a disability, your employer is required to provide you one. The purpose of the reasonable accommodation is to allow you to complete the essential tasks of your job in a reasonable manner. You must provide medical documentation of your need or limitations, but the documentation need not identify what your disability is. You or your doctor may make suggestions, but you are not entitled to demand a specific accommodation. It is important to remember that what is considered reasonable varies from employer to employer. What is required of a large corporation as a reasonable accommodation may not be required of a smaller business. For more information, contact on Reasonable Accommodation, contact: The New York State Division of Human Rights. (See:htpp://
