Performing Job Functions

This interactive process allows for fair treatment of people with disabilities and gives them the platform to excel.

Furthermore, when the employer doesn’t make a true effort to assist the employee so they can thrive, the relationship becomes tense and may break down entirely, potentially influencing the worker to quit.
