Reasonable Accomodation Work Question
« on: March 23, 2022, 05:09:32 pm »
Hiv+ 20 years here.  Got KS randomly 3 years ago even though numbers were great..go figure.  Anyway, after having pins/needles sensations and now issues with burning sensations all over my torso off and on daily as well as heat/cold sensitivity I was diagnosed with small fiber neuropathy. I am for the first time thinking of asking for a reasonable accommodation at work (in NY state).  I work from home 3 days per week which they now they are only going to allow 2.  My reasonable accommodation would be to either request to wfh permanently OR maybe go in once per week. 

I can't control the temp or lighting at work.  I need to get up and be able to move around at times.  Does anyone think that is an unreasonable request?  Hate the thought of disclosing but I am miserable!  Thanks for any and all responses.

Where I work, I don' t know that one is required to disclose, only that a doctor's letter be filed. The letter might say "Due to Lijoe's ongoing and chronic medical condition, it would be best, in the interests of his health and productivity, for him to move from home as little as possible."

I don't think it's their business -- but I could be wrong. You are being pro-active, and that's always a good thing. You want to work -- you just can't commute.

NEVER feel guilty about making a request of this type. At the end of the day, companies are about companies' bottom line. Don't be a martyr for work!
