Is CBP required to provide reasonable accommodation for qualified employees and applicants with disabilities?

Yes. It is a violation of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, to fail to provide reasonable accommodation to the known physical or mental limitations of a qualified individual with a disability, unless to do so would impose an undue hardship on the operation of CBP’s programs. Undue hardship means that the accommodation would require significant difficulty or expense.
