Can I lay off the worker?

To satisfy the duty to accommodate, you must accommodate to the point of undue hardship. This involves looking at modifying the job methods and tools as well as looking at other available job positions that meet the worker’s skills, education, and functional abilities. Communication with the WSCC Case Manager is important as they may also be able to assist you and the worker.
