  • Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, an employer is prohibited from discriminating against an "individual with a disability" who, with "reasonable accommodation," can perform the essential functions of the job. No such accommodation is required if the employer can show that it would impose an "undue hardship" on the operation of its business.
