Crestview, FL asked in Employment Law for Florida

Q: Disability accommodation

When starting the process for an accommodation for a disability. Can I ask for a reduced work schedule even if the employer does not do part-time employment? The company does have some part-time employees now, that perform my same job.

A: Sure, you can ask your employer for whatever accommodation you think you want--but that does not mean that you (a) are entitled to your choice of accommodations, or (b) will receive whatever accommodation you ask for. Finally, and FYI: the fact that some other employees are working part-time does not mean anything. Each request is considered separately, and can be denied for many different reasons.
