Question: #12
When an employee requests leave as a reasonable accommodation; may an employer provide an accommodation that requires him/her to remain on the job instead?
Yes, if the employer's proposed reasonable accommodation would be effective and eliminate the need for leave. Accordingly, an employer may reallocate minor job tasks or provide a temporary transfer instead of leave, so long as the employee can still address his/her medical needs.
