A: Whether your request is an undue burden depends on many things, including the size of your employer, your position and your job duties, and the need (if any) for you to work in excess of 40 hours per week. A request for an accommodation triggers the employer's duty to engage in an interactive process to determine whether there is an accommodation that allows you to continue to perform the essential functions of your job without causing the employer an undue burden. You should contact an employment law attorney in your area to discuss your situation in detail.
