Employee Accommodation Assessments

Typically medical restrictions will have been provided prior to this assessment and the demands of the job have been reviewed. It is an opportunity for the employer to be assisted in meeting their duty to accommodate by brainstorming with the occupational therapist methods of modifying work tasks, administrative policies or hours of work, environmental stimuli and other less obvious accommodations.
