Do I have to tell my employer that I have a disability?
Under the ADA, employers are only required to provide accommodations for employees who are experiencing workplace problems because of a disability. Therefore, unless you let your employer know that you have a disability, the employer is not obligated to consider accommodations under the ADA.
Reasonable accommodation is any change or adjustment to a work environment that permits an employee with a disability to perform the essential functions of a job. Reasonable accommodation may include modifying equipment or devices, assistive technology or interpreters.
