Book: Making It Work - A Guide for Employees

Managing a health condition or disability that affects your performance at work can be challenging and even frightening. Workplace accommodations under the ADA can help.

Making It Work is an easy-to-understand guide to workplace accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act. It will help you:

  • Understand how the ADA applies to you and your job
  • Research, request, and negotiate a reasonable accommodation with your employer
  • Learn about special cases: service animals, temporary workforce, veterans’ issues, and the mature workforce (workers over 55)
  • Understand how to use leave and other benefits
  • Find your path to working and living well with a health condition

Author Sheryl Ellis offers guidance from her own experience as a human resources professional, a Certified ADA Coordinator, and an employee with a health condition.

The Making It Work cover shows a photograph of two hands in a handshake.

Who Should Read Making It Work?

All kinds of people can benefit from the information in Making It Work, including:

  • Employees who want to understand what it means to have an “ADA disability” and whether they qualify for an accommodation

Hint: “Qualifying” for workplace accommodations is easier than you think. If you have a health condition that affects what you do every day, you probably qualify!

  • Employees who need help making it work, and who want to effectively communicate their need for an ADA accommodation so they can continue to successfully work with a health condition
  • Employers who want to help their employees be informed, educated, and knowledgeable about Title I of the ADA and the accommodation process while also assisting them in complying and reducing the risks of liability
  • HR departments who want to help employees understand the rights and responsibilities of both the employee and employer and the accommodation process under the ADA
  • HR staff who want to support their employees in requesting the accommodations they need to continue to work effectively and improve employee morale and productivity
