It is the responsibility of the management to provide an environment where all employees are treated as all other employees of the Company. The human resource manager will offer guidance in managing this type of situation, as well as approve and provide materials and literature for the purpose of employee information and education on life-threatening illnesses and diseases.
The employee’s help in these matters is also essential, and it is the employee’s responsibility to tell the Company if and when they have any medical restrictions that would prevent them from performing the essential functions of their job, with or without reasonable accommodation and when potential harm to co-workers or customers may be probable in the future.
At the request of the employee, the worksite may be reasonably accommodated to meet the reasonable need of an employee provided that they do not impose an undue business expense and the improvements or changes are consistent with business needs. Giving notice to the management of these requests for accommodation will allow the company to plan for the upcoming changes needed, if applicable.
