this is the question...What are some measures a company can take to reasonably accommodatepeople with disabilities, or those with a known drug abuse problem,and how does the simulation demonstrate these? However, the only part I don't understand is the last. How do I simulate and demonstrate these on paper? PLEASE HELP!
Please see my previous post answering your question.
YOU don't simulate.
A qualified employee or applicant with a disability is an individual who, with or without reasonable accommodation, can perform the essential functions of the job in question. Reasonable accommodation may include, but is not limited to:
* Making existing facilities used by employees readily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities.
* Job restructuring, modifying work schedules, reassignment to a vacant position;
* Acquiring or modifying equipment or devices, adjusting or modifying examinations, training materials, or policies, and providing qualified readers or interpreters.
An employer is required to make a reasonable accommodation to the known disability of a qualified applicant or employee if it would not impose an "undue hardship" on the operation of the employer's business. Undue hardship is defined as an action requiring significant difficulty or expense when considered in light of factors such as an employer's size, financial resources, and the nature and structure of its operation.
An employer is not required to lower quality or production standards to make an accommodation; nor is an employer obligated to provide personal use items such as glasses or hearing aids.
Now "known drug abuse" problem? That has to be defined. If it is an illegal drug, I hope there is a policy prohibiting anyone who fails initial and followon random drug tests. Duh.
As with MsSue, the simulation is odd, unless it was something you were supposed to have watch. You don't simulate anything.
