    The ADA requires covered employers to provide reasonable accommodations so employees with disabilities can perform the essential functions of their jobs but sometimes there are other reasons why employers may have to provide accommodations. What could they be? See JAN’s Accommodations Beyond Job Performance = Compliance and Inclusion at https://askjan.org/articles/Accommodations-Beyond-Job-Performance-Compliance-and-Inclusion.cfm

    Many businesses employ contingent workers sourced through staffing agencies to support their operational needs. When it comes to applying the ADA, staffing agencies and client employers sometimes misinterpret their individual and joint responsibilities to accommodate workers with disabilities and abide by the law. See JAN’s practical guidance on this topic in, Practical Guidance on Contingent Workers and the ADA at https://askjan.org/articles/Practical-Guidance-on-Contingent-Workers-and-the-ADA.cfm
