Reasonable Accommodation

2002

U.S. AIRWAYS, INC. v. BARNETT (00-1250) 228 F.3d 1105

Questions before the Court:
  1. How the ADA resolves a potential conflict between the interests of a disabled worker who seeks assignment to a particular position as a "reasonable accommodation" and the interests of other workers with superior rights to bid for the job under an employer's seniority system.
  2. Does the accommodation demand trump the seniority system?
