In this episode Serina and Jeff talk about Reasonable Accommodations for the workplace. What is a Reasonable Accommodation? What is a Hardship? What can we bring to the table when Accommodations are being investigated and what solutions you may already have.
Sometimes creativity and innovations can bring about a solution and some of the common apps we use on a daily basis can be a tool for the workplace/ It’s not always a major purchase that is needed when considering accommodations.
While the word, “Reasonable” and “Hardship” can be defined from so many different perspectives and from company to company, Serina and Jeff explore solutions and encourage one to contact and work with their State Services, Voc-Rehab specialist and their company to find the best solution.
