If you have a disability, your employer is going to be required to give you a reasonable accommodation at work so long as it does not present an undue hardship on the employer. This is a really fact specific inquiry that the courts will make, there’s no cookie cutter approach here. But some common examples of the types of reasonable accommodations that courts have required employers to make are: putting in a wheelchair ramp for an employee who’s in a wheelchair, or giving you a flexible schedule so you can attend your medical appointments for your disability.
Those are the types of accommodations that employers will commonly make, and be required to make under anti-discrimination laws.
