Is CBP obligated to provide a reasonable accommodation for an individual if management is unaware of the individual’s disability?

No. CBP’s obligation to provide reasonable accommodation applies only to known physical or mental limitations that substantially limit one or more major life activities or there is a record of impairment. Management does not assume that an employee with even an obvious disability cannot perform the functions of his/her job. Thus, an employee needs to inform the employer if any limitations associated with the employee’s disability require an accommodation.
