Frequently, it’s necessary for employers to make a workplace accommodation for a qualified individuals with a disability (IWDs), if requested and appropriate. Reasonable accommodations can apply job duties and/or where and how job tasks are performed. A reasonable accommodation should make it easier for the employee to successfully perform the duties of the position.

NASA is dedicated to enhancing its recruitment, promotion, and retention of qualified persons with disabilities by providing the information and resources necessary to support them and to accomplish the Agency’s mission. To implement the requirements of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, the Agency is committed to providing timely and effective reasonable accommodations to known physical or mental limitations of individuals (employees and job applicants) who meet the statutory definition of a qualified individual with a disability, unless to do so would cause undue hardship to the Agency.
