Parking is a work-related task in that it is needed for those who drive to and from work. There are times when an individual needs a more accessible parking spot due to limitations that inhibit their ability to access the work site from a distance.
Providing accessible parking spaces with an unobstructed and easily traveled path into the workplace may be an effective accommodations for individuals with a variety of limitations.
Employees who experience limitations in concentration may need a flexible schedule in order to work optimally during hours of increased attentiveness. Flexible schedules can also be used to have a period of mental rest in order to refocus and reorient into his/her work. Examples of a flexible schedule would be adjusting starting and ending times of the workday, combining regularly scheduled breaks to create one extended break or dividing large breaks into smaller segments, and allowing work to be completed during hours when the employee is most mentally alert.
Telework, Work from Home, Working Remotely
Telework, within certain fields, can be an excellent alternative for employees who have conditions that make it difficult for them to leave their home or reliably travel to a place of work. Employers should consider if a job can be made compatible with telework for their employees and communicate their expectations and requirement for the job to be performed out of home. Allowing work from home during worksite or office construction; extremely hot, cold, or inclement weather; or parking renovations could be a reasonable accommodation.
