The PWFA prohibits a covered employer from requiring an employee to accept an accommodation without a discussion about the accommodation, denying a job or employment opportunity to a qualified employee or applicant based on the person’s need for a reasonable accommodation, and requiring an employee to take leave if another reasonable accommodation can be provided that would let the employee keep working, according to the EEOC.
