Nurses with disabilities often ask, "how do I ask for reasonable accommodation"?
The Department of Labor's Job Accommodation Network (JAN) suggests the following:
"According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the federal agency charged with enforcing the ADA, an accommodation request does not have to be in writing. However, the EEOC suggests that individuals with disabilities might find it useful to document accommodation requests in the event there is a dispute about whether or when they requested accommodation. One way to document an accommodation request is to make a written request."
Ask that your employer to respond to your request in a reasonable amount of time.
