NJ Disability Discrimination Law – Reasonable Accommodations for Disabilities

New Jersey employment law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations for an employees disability.  An employer is required to accommodate a disability unless it would impose an an undue hardship on the operation of the business.  New Jersey Law  requires an employer to make a “reasonable accommodation to the limitations of an employee … who is a person with a disability.”  An employer can be excused from making the accommodation if the disabled employee  cannot perform the essential function of the job even with reasonable accommodation.

If your employer has denied you an accommodation or if you were terminated as a result of your disability, please contact our NJ Disability Discrimination lawyers for a free consultation.
