Employers are not required to provide personal accommodations such as hearing aids and wheel chairs.Employers should be especially vigilant in defining and articulating essential job functions, and documenting the risks associated with an employee’s failure to perform such functions.Spoilation refers to the destruction, alteration, or withholding of evidence.
