The Americans with Disabilities Act and the Fair
Employment Housing Act require employers to review work performed by a
person with a disability and provide accommodation if the employee is
able to perform "the essential functions" of the job. It is important
for the employer to have a clear definition of the essential functions
and have a thorough job description.
The Remas Group is well seasoned in analyzing
job tasks and work function to develop a written report specifying the
essential functions, marginal functions and the extent of physical and
and intellectual demands associated with a specific job or class of
jobs. This is a valuable benefit to employers who want to protect
themselves from possible civil litigation due to a failure to consider
reasonable accommodation in the workplace.
The Remas Group performs this type of work on
an hourly or contract basis depending on the needs of the company.
