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?
Answer:
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.
