Accommodating deaf workers

Your rights in the workplace may depend on who your employer is.

Even if individuals with disabilities use hearing aids, prosthetics, medication, or other measures that mitigate symptoms of their disabilities, they are still protected under the ADA.

What are some of the reasonable accommodations the company could have provided to the deaf employee?

Reasonable Accommodations for Deaf Workers Generally, an employer must provide a disabled employee with a requested reasonable accommodation unless doing so would be an "undue hardship" on the employer.

Title I applies only to employers with 15 or more employees.
